GranuFlo Lawsuit & Settlement Attorneys
People suffering from kidney disease often have to undergo dialysis treatment. The type of kidney disease being treated can be kidney failure or anything related to renal function. Dialysis, a treatment required due to the kidneys not functioning, filters the blood artificially as the kidneys are unable to so. GranuFlo, and NaturaLyte, are chemicals used during dialysis to filter toxins and impurities from the blood. These chemicals may cause heightened levels of bicarbonates in the bloodstream of the dialysis patient. This can lead to metabolic alkalosis and cause cardiovascular diseases such as:
Cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)
Low blood pressure (hypotension)
In March 2012 the manufacturers of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte initiated a Class 1 recall, which is the most severe recall classification. Class 1 recalls are only issued when a product is known to cause serious health issues and/or death.
If you have been given GranuFlo in your dialysis treatment you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. Contact the GranuFlo Recall Attorneys at The Law Office of Nokes & Nokes by dialing (949) 716-7200. You can also email a defective product attorney at Nokes & Nokes here.
