With recent advances in technologies, biosensors have shown a great potential to provide better home monitoring in hypertension (HTN), medication compliance, diagnostic device for kidney disease, CKD/end-stage renal disease (ESRD) care, and post kidney transplant management. Recent findings Multiple devices/biosensors have been developed related to HTN, kidney function including real-time glomerular filtration rate, CKD/end-stage renal disease, and transplant care. In recent advances in wearable biosensors, point of care monitoring system could provide more integrated care to the patients via telenephrology. Summary This review focuses on the recent advances in biosensors which may be useful for HTN and nephrology. We will discuss future potential clinical implication of these biosensors.
