What is GranuFlo?

GranuFlo is a popular dry acid product use to treat acute kidney failure in the dialysis industry. Your kidneys remove waste chemicals from the blood stream. This process helps the body maintain a healthy PH Level. Kidney failure may result in a pH imbalance and unnecessary acid in the bloodstream. Dialysis treatments controls this chemical imbalance by allowing it to neutralize some of the acidic buildup in the blood stream.

GranuFlo FDA Recall

Although GranuFlo can successfully treat kidney failure, it can result in serious side-effects. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), GranuFlo and other acid concentrates may carry significant risk factors. The FDA states that GranuFlo use may be associated with metabolic alkalosis – a significant risk factor associated with low blood pressure. Additionally, GranuFlo has been connected with hypokalemia, hypoxemia, hypercapnia and cardiac arrhythmia. If ignored, cardiac arrhythmia may result in sudden heart failure.

The term hypokalemia refers to low potassium levels in the blood stream. Potassium allows the heart and other muscles in the body to function properly. If ignored, the consumer may suffer serious hear-related side effects. Additionally, patients may suffer from low oxygen levels in the blood stream (hypoxemia) or extreme amounts carbon dioxide in the bloodstream (hypercapnia). The term "cardiac arrhythmia" refers to an irregular heartbeat. Without proper treatment, cardiac arrhythmia may result in death.
