Reports of Dangerous Pharmaceutical Products

Kidney failure can lead to a host of health complications, often resulting to death. The main function of kidneys is to filter out and remove the toxins and waste in the blood and dispose it as urine. If these functions are disrupted, the toxins can spread to the other parts of the body and disrupt their functions as well. Dialysis is one option to take over the function of the kidneys, but this life-saving treatment comes with it side-effects. Based on reports from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), kidney failure due to dialysis is the cause of more or less 400,000 deaths of Americans.

Complication from dialysis stems from a variety of causes, from age factors, contamination of dialysis tubes, to dialysis drugs. Drugs such as GranuFlo has been linked to increased risks of stroke and heart attacks, with some patients already a victim of such complications after using the dialysis drug. What makes GranuFlo the presence of bicarbonate in the drug: many physicians have underestimated the level of bicarbonate in GranuFlo that lead to it being in excessive levels. GranuFlo’s manufacturer, Fresenius Medical Care (FMC), was aware of the possible dosing error, but did not share this information to the FDA and the medical world. According to the website of Williams Kherkher, the manufacturer can be considered liable for endangering the health of patients who were not aware of the risks that the dialysis assistant can cause.

Aside from the rising number of GranuFlo lawsuits, there has also been an increase in the amount of patients who are suffering side effects from using Actos for type-2 diabetes. According to the website of Williams Kherkher, Actos has grown to be considered so dangerous that it is only given as a last resort. This is because it has been linked to the development of bladder cancer. Actos further endangers the health of patients through drug interactions. It is very important to understand the drug contraindications on the drug insert to avoid being exposed to such complications and prevent adverse effects. Actos lawsuits, along with GranuFlo lawsuits, are just among the many medical malpractice lawsuits that people should look into and get updated to avoid health complications.
