A recent awareness of granuflo and naturalyte acid concentrate has spiked an interest in the filing of a kidney dialysis lawsuit. With the spike in kidney dialysis lawsuit filings, a kidney dialysis lawsuit MDL has been setup in the USDC, District of Massachusetts – (In re Fresenius GranuFlo/Naturalyte Dialysate Litigation, MDL No. 2428).
Many of the cases filed in the kidney dialysis lawsuit MDL allege that heart attacks, strokes, sudden cardiac arrest and other life-threatening heart problems may result from use of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care. Fresenius Medical Care makes GranuFlo acid concentrate powder and Naturalyte products. GranuFlo, a dry (powder) acid concentration is used in the dialysis process to help remove harmful substances from the individual’s blood stream in the same way that a fully functioning kidney would normally do.
The FDA has issued a recall and Fresenius Medical Care told doctors working in its clinics about the increased risk of heart attacks and strokes that its Naturalyte Liquid Acid and Granuflo products could potentially cause for patients who already have high bicarbonate levels. Fresenius is one of the largest dialysis product manufacturers in the world. It operates dozens of dialysis centers in the US, which provides dialysis for more than 100,000 people.
Unfortunately, it appears that dialysis patients that use granuFlo or naturalyte may be exposed to potential health complications, including:
- Low Blood Pressure
- Cardiac Arrhythmia
- Heart Attack
- Metabolic Alkalosis
- Sudden Death
