A new Walmart blood pressure study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that the company’s test is misleading and that Walmart’s results could be misleading.
The study found that Wal-Mart’s test for blood pressure is not the same as the American Heart Association’s blood pressures test, which is used to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The AHA has been criticized by many experts for its lack of transparency and accuracy.
Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The study’s authors wrote that the results of the AHA’s tests were based on a “small sample size” and that Walmart is not in compliance with the American Society of Hypertension (ASH) recommendations.
The researchers said they were unable to determine the accuracy of Wal-mart’s tests because the company does not publicly disclose its results.
In addition, Wal-marts tests may not be accurate for people with hypertension, the researchers said.
The researchers said their study is the first to look at the accuracy and reliability of blood pressure tests in the U.S. The authors said the tests were “not intended for consumers who may be more likely to be at risk for heart disease or have high blood pressure or other cardiovascular risks.”
A Wal-Marts spokeswoman declined to comment.
Wal-mart spokesman Mark McMenamin said the company is “committed to providing quality, affordable and reliable products and services to our customers.”
The company’s website states that “all Wal-mds products are tested by a qualified, independent laboratory before they are sold to customers.”
The study is one of several recent studies showing that Walmarts blood pressure testing is inaccurate.
In August, a new study found a study published by the American Journal of Public Health found that some Walmards tests could be inaccurate, including for people who have pre-existing heart conditions.
