Hundreds of thousands of people undergo dialysis treatments every year. These treatments help patients with kidney issues stay balanced by removing excess waste, salt, and water within the body. Medications, such as Granuflo and NaturaLyte, are used in conjunction with the treatment to lower the acidity in the patient’s blood. However, these medications have been linked in recent years to serious heart conditions, such as heart attacks, cardiac arrhythmias, and even death.
Since these drugs were released, it has been found that both Granuflo and NaturaLyte increase the levels of bicarbonate in the blood, which causes a host of cardiac-related health issues. In 2011, the manufacturer of the medications released an internal memo that stated they were aware of the adverse effects of the drugs, but instead of pulling the drugs, they continued to sell them, putting thousands of additional patients at risk.
