GranuFlo Recall Attorneys
Someone suffering from kidney disease often have to undergo dialysis treatment. The type of kidney disease can range from kidney failure or anything related to renal function. Dialysis, due to the kidneys not functioning, filter the blood artificially as the kidneys are unable to. GranuFlo, and NaturaLyte, are chemicals used during dialysis to filter toxins and impurities from the blood. These chemicals, may cause heightened levels of bicarbonates in the bloodstream of the dialysis patient. This can lead to metabolic alkalosis and lead to cardiovascular diseases such as:
Cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)
Heart attack ok
Low blood pressure (hypotension)
In March 2012 the manufacturers of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte initiated a Class 1 recall which is the most severe classification. Class 1 recalls are only issued when a product is known to cause serious health issues and or death.
If you have been given GranuFlo in your dialysis treatment you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. Call the GranuFlo Recall Attorneys at our firm. You can also email a defective product attorneys by clicking here.
