Dr. George Bakris Part 3, An Idea for an At-Home Kidney Test

In part 3 of this exclusive video, DIC publisher Steve Freed talks with Dr. George Bakris about an idea to create an at-home kidney test to screen for possible kidney disease.

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.
