GranuFlo and NaturalLyte are dialysis drugs that have been recalled. They can cause serious injury and even sudden heart attacks and death.
Side Effects Include
- Low blood pressure
- Heart attack or myocardial infarction
- Heart Problems
- Cardiopulmonary arrest
- Metabolic alkalosis
- Wrongful Death
Because of potential harmful side effects of GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® the FDA has issued a Class 1 recall on these dialysis products. The two potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals are acid concentrates diluted to become a component of dialysate, which is used to clean the blood of patients undergoing hemodialysis for treatment of renal (kidney) failure.
There is a Risk Of Potential Overdosing
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte contain acetic acid plus sodium acetate, (sodium diacetate). Sodium acetate gets converted into bicarbonate by the patient’s tissues/liver, effectively increasing bicarbonate levels beyond what was initially prescribed.
Metabolic Alkalosis is a Dangerous GranuFlo Side Effect.
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are not inherently dangerous products, but become dangerous pharmaceuticals when errors occur in their mixing and administering.
How Did The Public Become Mislead ?
Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) manufactures GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, as well as many of the machines and products used in dialysis treatments. FMC is also one of the largest dialysis clinic operators in the world.. In 2011, FMC issued an internal notice to its company-owned clinics, warning of the risks and side effects of the products; however, they failed to offer warnings to thousands of physicians and clinics not owned by FMC who continued to use their product.
The FDA issued a Class 1 recall of all GranuFlo and NaturaLyte products.
Notice :If you, a loved one or someone you are a caregiver for is undergoing dialysis you must watch the treatment of your loved on carefully.
