IRVINE, Calif.--(Wright & McGurk Law announced today that they are accepting new dialysis injury cases. The FDA has recently recalled two dialysis concentrates which may be responsible for your injuries. Consumers report injuries that they attribute to GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® products ranging from heart attacks to death. Wright & McGurk Law is seeking new clients who have been injured as the result of their dialysis treatments. The firm represents clients nationally and seeks to help consumers who have been injured.)--
Both GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® are dialysis solutions manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care. These solutions were mixed with bicarbonates to lower acid build up in the blood. However, both GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® had elevated bicarbonate levels, which not every doctor was aware of. The mixture proved too powerful for some patients, causing heart attacks and death. The FDA has since recalled these products to protect the public.
Fresenius was aware of the potential for overdose and subsequent heart attack. In 2010, Fresenius’ own doctors observed 947 heart attacks during dialysis treatment. In an internal memo, Fresenius warned its doctors of the dangers. However, they neglected to warn outside doctors or patients. Fresenius treated an estimated 1/3 of the over 400,000 Americans receiving dialysis treatment per year. This meant they potentially endangered thousands of patients’ health.
