Risk For Heart Attacks Following Use of GranFlo & NaturalyteFor patients who receive dialysis, there is a new concern that they may be at risk for heart attacks. One of the types of products used in the dialysis procedure can lead to high bicarbonate levels within the body. This can lead to cardiovascular problems up to and including cardiac arrest or heart attacks. Until recently, this complication was widely unknown both to doctors and patents alike.

Overdosing Issues Relating To Common Medications Used To Reduce Acid Build Up

When a patient is undergoing dialysis, there are products that are used to reduce the acid build up in the patient’s blood. These products, such as GranuFlo and Naturalyte, can contain acetic acid, acetate and citrate that are converted to bicarbonate in the body. Many dialysis patients may also take medications that contain these same ingredients and by combining them, the patient may have levels of bicarbonate in their systems that are dangerous. High levels are attributed to heart problems, up to and including fatal cardiac arrest or heart attack.

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx

Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
