News that a Granuflo lawsuit was filed by a New York woman whose relative died allegedly after using the dialysis product brings some hope for Carolyn – her son died after receiving Granuflo at a DaVita Center.
“Although my son had diabetes and renal failure, his urologist told us that he could live many more years on dialysis,” says Carolyn. “We did some research and my son asked for my opinion. Although not all reviews about dialysis are positive, I found out that many people have lived decades on dialysis, as long as you get the right treatment.
According to Carolyn and more than 460 Granuflo complaints alleging serious cardiovascular injuries due to Granuflo and another acid concentrate called NaturaLyte made by Fresenius Medical Care, their loved ones did not receive the right dialysis treatment.
“My son suffered low blood pressure during his very first treatment with Granuflo,” says Carolyn. “The technician put him in a wheelchair and I drove him home – my son was so weak and dizzy. I was really concerned because he was supposed to have dialysis treatment at the DaVita Center three times a week. We went back on Wednesday and his blood pressure plummeted again, but he didn’t really have a choice.
“My son would be on the machine sometimes up to four hours, sometimes only two hours. The second week the same thing happened but he kept going for another few months, until he had a massive stroke during dialysis that left him brain dead. I wasn’t there with him that time and I will always regret that.” To read the entire article click here.
