Have you suffered adverse affects as a result of GranuFlo or Naturalyte dialysis concentrates? The FDA has issued a Class I recall after learning of a pattern of heart attacks happening during or shortly after treatment with GranuFlo dialysis concentrates.
So how did this happen? Fresenius GranuFlo and Naturalyte products contain sodium biacetate, consisting of acetate and bicarbonate. The acetate is metabolized by the liver into bicarbonate, giving a double dose of bicarbonate compared to other formulas. Fresenius knew that an overdose of bicarbonate could cause problems including heart attacks, but failed to warn all clinics using its products.
In 2016, Fresenius Medical Care agreed to pay $250 million to settle lawsuits related to its products, and you may be entitled to compensation.If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of GranuFlo or Naturalyte and are in need of a GranuFlo lawyer, please contact us for a free consultation. There is a deadline to file your GranuFlo lawsuit, so please do not hesitate to contact us immediately.
In March, 2012, the Food and Drug Administration issued a Class I recall of GranuFlo and Naturalyte, due to concerns of heart attacks and low blood pressure. In 2010, more than 900 patients suffered GranuFlo-related heart attacks.
In February, 2016, Fresenius Medical Care reached an agreement to set aside $250 million to settle claims related to its dialysis products. If you or a loved one suffered a GranuFlo or Naturalyte injury or death, you may be entitled to compensation.
GranuFlo powder and NaturaLyte liquid are drugs called dialysates which neutralize acid in the blood when used in dialysis machines. These drugs contain sodium diacetate, which has caused heart issues resulting from excess bicarbonate in the blood.
