Iowa GranuFlo Lawsuit Lawyers
Coping with kidney failure is serious and patients who receive treatment not only have much courage, but also strength. Nevertheless, when faced with the
debilitating side effects of a defective drug used to treat kidney problems, the challenges that result may be difficult to overcome alone.
If you or a loved one has been severely injured due to a defective drug like GranuFlo, please contact Hope Law Firm at (515) 255-3559
to learn more about your legal options and rights. You may be compensated for medical expenses if a pharmaceutical manufacturer is responsible
for negligence of informing patients of the common risks of GranuFlo.
GranuFlo is a medical drug for hemodialysis treatment, which is a common method used to treat kidney failure. GranuFlo is a dry acid concentrate that
becomes a component of dialysate, used to help neutralize acid build up in the blood stream.
During dialysis, GranuFlo and Naturalyte are diluted with purified water and combined with sodium bicarbonate to filter the patient’s blood. If components of
dialysate are combined incorrectly, this can pose a high risk of metabolic alkalosis for the patient. This can lead to the following side effects
associated with GranuFlo:
- Low Blood Pressure
- Cardiac Arrhythmia
- Cardiopulmonary Arrest

Medical Care (FMC) knew of the common side effects from GranuFlo, but neglected to inform, patients, doctors, or the FDA. Class I recalls are often associated
with products that can cause serious health consequences or death. If you have experienced any of the serious side effects of GranuFlo, you may be compensated
for the following:
- Medical Expenses – Any surgery, doctor visits, reoccurring
pain, and any additional medical expenses associated with the risks of GranuFlo
may be documented for reimbursement.
- Pain and Suffering – Being a victim of a defective drug has
multiple repercussions, including pain and suffering and/or depression.
- Lost Wages – Undergoing injuries from a drug flaw can leave
