Portsmouth Injury Lawyer Report : Conference Will Look at the Heart Attack Dangers of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte
During the summer the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Dialysis Products manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care.
As a Portsmouth, VA dangerous drugs injury lawyer I am aware it takes a fairly serious side effect for a recall to be issued and that’s certainly the case with these drugs.
According to reports the FDA Action Follows the revelation that more than 900 patients suffered cardiac arrests at Fresenius Dialysis Clinics in 2010.
It appears GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are associated with elevated bicarbonate levels, making the drugs a significant risk factor for a heart attack.
Needless to say lawsuits have followed the revelations, just as we have seen a large number of legal actions over Actos since the diabetes drug’s link to bladder cancer was highlighted in studies.
Lawyers involved in these cases and other interested parties will be attending HarrisMartin Dialysis Injury Litigation Conference on GranuFlo and NaturaLyte in Miami Beach, FL, on November 2.
The event comes a day after HarrisMartin Publishing conference on the dangers of the blood thinning drug Pradaxa.
As a Portsmouth injury attorney I am alarmed by the extent of the problems associated with these drugs as well as the serious nature of the side effects. These are widely used drugs.
