Hemodialysis is supposed to save lives, not endanger them. Sadly, two popular dialysis concentrates have been recalled after causing fatal episodes of heart failure. The manufacturer, Fresenius Medical Care, recently recalled its GranuFlo and NaturaLyte products.
A new medical study revealed a disturbing connection between Zithromax (azithromycin) and fatal heart problems. Research revealed that patients taking Zithromax, or Z-Pak, were 2.5 times more likely to die from a heart problem than those taking another antibiotic, amoxicillin.
