Fresenius Granuflo Injury Support Group

July 23rd, 2012

Noticing an absence of any support groups or forums online for patients who have suffered from the dialysis drugs NaturaLyte® and GranuFlo® , we have decided to create a forum here for dialysis patients to voice there concerns and complaints in a supportive environment.

On March 29th of 2012, the FDA issued a recall of the NaturaLyte® and GranuFlo® dialysis products made by Fresenius Medical Care (FMC). This occurred after an earlier FMC internal memo warning of the dangers of these drugs was disseminated to FMC’s clinics, but not other clinics that also used these drugs. Research show that these drugs cause an elevated risk of cardiopulmonary arrest, metabolic askalosis, hypotension, heart problems, stroke, and even death. Today FMC continues to aggressively market GranuFlo and NaturaLyte despite the FDA’s class I recall.

We hope that this forum will be helpful to people who have been injured by these drugs, and we will also be enlisting the support of medical and legal experts to answer any questions beyond our scope that might arise here.
