What is the Difference Between GranuFlo and NaturaLyte?
Both products are manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care. Both are used to help achieve the proper balance of acid and alkaline in a dialysis patient's blood. The difference is the form of the products. GranuFlo is a dry acid powder and NaturaLyte is a liquid. Historically, medical facilities have used a liquid acid. But, the dry acid powder found in GranuFlo is more concentrated so some medical facilities prefer it because it is cheaper to ship and store than the liquid version. In addition, the risk of injury in handling dry acid powder vs. liquid acid is considerably less. Despite the difference in form, both can cause too much alkalinity in the blood, which can cause stroke, cardiac arrest and death.
