If you or a loved one has suffered a heart attack or a family member has died as a result of the dialysis drug GranuFlo, you may have a case against the manufacturer Fresenius Medical Care. The company knew about the dangers of their product as evidenced by internal memos but never alerted anyone outside of the company about the potentially fatal side effects of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. The The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating this matter.

The dialysis drugs GranuFlo and NaturaLyte produce higher bicarbonate levels than other similar drugs. When bicarbonate levels are elevated in the body, this can result in heart attacks and even death.
