Granuflo Side Effects- Serious

Elevated levels of bicarbonate in the body can lead to serious complications, including:
  • stroke,
  • cardiac arrest,
  • heart attack,
  • low blood pressure,
  • irregular heartbeats, or
  • death.

Large corporations often fail to put patient safety first.

The FDA recalled GranuFlo in June of 2012 after the company did not disclose the risks of serious complications (and potentially lethal risks) of using GranuFlo improperly for dialysis patients. The product, manufactured by German company Fresenius Medical Care, contains acetate, which converts into bicarbonate in the body and if doctors do not monitor these levels closely the risks and side effects of GranuFlo are dangerous, and sometimes lethal. Fresenius knew about the risks since last year, but failed to alert dialysis clinics nationwide about the issue. Instead, they chose to disclose the information solely to doctors at their Fresenius-owned dialysis clinics. The FDA is now investigating Fresenius for failure to warn the public of the serious risks associated with GranuFlo. Patients often suffer needlessly because of a corporation's negligence. If your loved one suffered injuries after dialysis you should contact an attorney to determine if GranuFlo was being administered incorrectly. You may have a claim to hold the company responsible for injuries. Contact us today to learn your rights.
