11 diabetes patients passed away after they underwent dialysis using Granuflo and Naturalyte, based on info taken from online news sources. Consequently, the loved ones of these alleged victims filed a Granuflo lawsuit against Fresenius Medical Care, demanding compensation for all the damages they have suffered. These Granuflo lawsuits were filed in various courts across the country, including Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, Texas, Illinois, California, and Florida. Based on released court documents, the deaths occurred between 2010 and 2012.
Naturalyte and Granuflo are vital components used in dialysis treatment. Both products are manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care, the operator of most dialysis facilities in the country. They were first presented to the U.S. market in 2003, and became very popular afterwards. In spite of their status, however, numerous dialysis patients allegedly suffered from severe complications after being administered with the above products. This prompted Fresenius to conduct research studies in order to determine the root cause of the reported problems.
