Kidney Dialysis Heart Attack, GranuFlo & NaturaLyte Recall Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Investigation
An estimated 400,000 Americans undergo dialysis treatment each year to treat end-stage renal disease (ESRD), commonly known as kidney failure. More than a third of these kidney dialysis patients are given the dialysis products GranuFlo and NaturaLyte – treatments that have recently been linked to hundreds of deaths and serious heart problems. A GranuFlo class action lawsuit investigation and NaturaLyte class action lawsuit investigation have been launched to investigate claims of death and other side effects reported by dialysis patients, including heart attack, heart problems, metabolic alkalosis, cardiopulmonary arrest, cardiac arrest, stroke, and more. If you or a loved one were on dialysis and had heart problems, you should be aware that your dialysis treatment may be the cause.
Dialysis patients on GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are up to six times more likely to suffer cardiopulmonary arrest and sudden cardiac death, prompting an emergency recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June 2012. Many patients don’t know they were given GranuFlo or NaturaLyte during their dialysis treatment, and may have suffered severe side effects – even death – without realizing their dialysis treatment was the cause. If you or your loved one were injured during or after kidney dialysis treatment, you may be eligible for compensation from the manufacturer, Fresenius Medical Care, which the FDA says failed to warn patients and doctors about the risks and severe side effects of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. The compensation specialists working the NaturaLyte/GranuFlo class action lawsuit settlement investigation can provide a free consultation about your claims to see if you have a case.

On June 27, 2012, the FDA issued a Class I recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, citing serious injuries and side effects. A Class I recall is the most serious type of recall and is reserved for dangerous or defective products that are likely to cause serious health problems or death. GranuFlo injury lawyers estimate Fresenius will face thousands of GranuFlo lawsuits, NaturaLyte lawsuits, and NaturaLyte/GranuFlo class action lawsuits as dialysis patients learn these recalled products might have caused their injuries.
Medical research links GranuFlo and NaturaLyte to severe side effects, including alkalosis, a condition associated with an increase in heart attack, cardiovascular death, sudden cardiac death and other catastrophic cardiovascular injuries in patients undergoing dialysis treatment.
Other GranuFlo side effects and NaturaLyte side effects include:
* Cardiopulmonary arrest
* Heart problems
* Metabolic alkalosis
* Low blood pressure
* Sudden heart attack
* Heart arrhythmia
There is proof that Fresenius Medical Care knew as early as 2010 that these kidney dialysis treatments were responsible for hundreds of deaths and placed kidney dialysis patients at risk for heart problems, but concealed this information from the FDA and the public to earn $12 billion in sales in 2010. Don’t be a victim – stand up for your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
NaturaLyte, GranuFlo Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Investigation
NaturaLyte and GranuFlo recall lawsuits are being filed across the country by dialysis patients who suffered severe side effects from these dialysis treatments and by family members of dialysis patients who died of their injuries.
GranuFlo injury attorneys are helping victims secure GranuFlo settlements and NaturaLyte settlements to cover losses caused by past and future medical expenses, past and future wage losses, disability, pain and suffering, and more. In addition, separate damages known as “loss of consortium” may be available for a spouse or loved one who lost the patient’s care and support due to their injury. A GranuFlo settlement specialist can help you determine which course of legal action is best for you and your family.
