Individuals with kidney problems must undergo dialysis on a routine basis to clear the kidney of waste and minerals.
Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) is the largest provider of dialysis products and supplies in the United States. It produces GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, two products used in dialysis centers throughout the country. These two products have been linked to serious side effects. In March 2012, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called for a Class 1 recall of these two products after many patients and their families reported grave side effects, including:
- Heart attack
- Dangerously low blood pressure
- Irregular heartbeats
- Pulmonary arrest
If you or a loved one has experienced any of these side effects after having GranuFlo or NaturaLyte administered during dialysis, you may have a claim against the Fresenius Medical Care.
