The company that produces the Granuflo Life Diet and the famous Nutra Flow is named “granuflix”. Nutra Flow is the brand that the company sells under its own name. The owner of the company is Flavio Melchi, a very famous Italian chef.
His original intention was to create a product for people who were overweight and that had to be able to help their bodies convert fats easily into energy. He realized early on that a health-conscious diet for people with weight problems might not be very successful if they didn’t change their eating habits as well.

He realized that he needed to put some ingredients in his new product that would help boost the metabolism and that would allow his company to sell more of his multi-dimensional dietary supplements and creams to people who need it. So he decided to combine the best ingredients and create his very first health supplement.
His new product would benefit people who had to lose weight after having a heart attack, cancer treatment or had diabetes. He saw this as his opportunity to enter the lucrative world of supplements. The first of the three patients to have been treated with the new product were a man and woman who both had heart attacks, a man with prostate surgery and a woman with fresenius medical care.
The woman with fresenius medical care required a total of eight tablets for her diabetes.
She was also required to take her other prescriptions on a daily basis and had to use her weight loss supplement every day. This could not have been easy for her. Her dietician instructed her that there would be an allergic reaction if she used any of the other products together with the weight loss tablets. Even though she had been prescribed those two products, she was not supposed to take the other two along with the Granuflo tablets.
To make matters worse, the woman with diabetes became extremely ill and developed congestive heart failure.
This was a huge concern to her family. This is where her lawsuit started. Her family doctor took her statement and then pursued legal actions against the supplier of the Granuflow, data and dialysis medicines.
It was the greed factor which is behind all these lawsuits and the lawsuits are still going on.
The problem with these medicines is that the customers are never made to understand the side effects. The dialysis patient never gets told about the kidney problems or the blood sugar dropouts.
They just get regular doses of the tablets and are told that the tablets are needed to maintain their glucose levels in the bloodstream. What the patients do not know is that the medicines cause many serious side effects like high blood pressure, kidney failure, heart attacks and strokes.
Another aspect is that these medicines are not FDA approved and so are not regulated.
So the manufacturers are not bound to reveal all the truth about these products. Only the FDA officials and doctors are supposed to know the truth. These lawsuits filed by the families of the patients have raised questions about the role of the company in increasing the cardiac arrest risks in patients.
The company claims that it has followed all the norms laid down by FDA. However, the lawyers and the patients are raising questions about the ingredients in the two products and how they might affect the health of patients who use them for dialysis treatments.
The company claims that no direct relationship has been found between the two products and the sudden cardiac arrest deaths of patients.
But it has also said that there is one case in which one of the two products caused the death of a patient while using them. The company also admits that the two medicines are sold over the internet and so there is no proper control over their sale and distribution. There have been several lawsuits filed by families of patients who had suffered cardiac arrest because of these two medicines.
The families of the victims are trying to get compensations as per the settlements offered by the courts.
The court has accepted the offers so far but has not yet ordered any amount to be paid. The amount offered might be too low to make it worth the settlement. So you should not take the offers on face value. Only get the best possible amount if you seek help from a good lawyer.
