Dr. George Bakris Part 1, Blood Pressure Guidelines

In part 1 of this exclusive video, DIC publisher Steve Freed once again visits with Dr. George Bakris to discuss the many blood pressure guidelines and what they should be for adults and those with diabetes.

Dr. George Bakris is a referral nephrologist, board-certified hypertension specialist, and professor of medicine and director of ASH Comprehensive Hypertension Center at The University of Chicago. He specializes in kidney disease as it relates to diabetes and blood pressure issues. He is an expert at interpreting ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, a technique that gives physicians a more accurate reading of a patient’s blood pressure by taking numerous measurements of a patient’s blood pressure over a 24-48 hour period.
