09-12-2012 – Yaz Lawsuit New Information on kidney stone related issues. A Yaz Lawsuit was filed by a California Woman alleging that Yaz was the underlying cause of her developing kidney stones. To the best of our knowledge this is the first Yaz Lawsuit or Yasmin Lawsuit which claims that either of these block buster birth control products causes kidney stones. To date the medical issues that have been at the center of both the Yaz Lawsuit and Yasmin Lawsuit have centered around blood clot related issues and to a lesser extent Gallbladder issues.
Whether or not the California Woman and her lawyer will chose to add their case to the existing Yaz/Yasmin Multi District Litigation in Illinois has yet to be made known. The Current MDL is often referred to by the public as the Yaz Class Action Lawsuit or Yasmin Class Action Lawsuit, although a Multi District litigation is not exactly the same thing as a Class Action Lawsuit although they do have many similarities.
Like with the Yaz Lawsuit Claims stemming from Blood Clot related issues as well as Gallbladder issues, any claims regarding a link between Yaz or Yasmin and Kidney stones will have to be supported by medical and scientific evidence.
Kidney Stones may not be the last medical issue that will be alleged to be linked to Yaz or Yasmin. Any medication that causes blood clots or effects the body’s ability to correctly coagulate blood could lead to any number of medical issues. Some of these issues may occur quickly, like a pulmonary embolism, a stroke or a DVT caused by the formation of a blood clot. Other medical issues related to a change in a person’s clotting factors could take much longer to develop. Blood chemistry is extremely complex and can affect every single organ in the body in one fashion or another.
If the California Plaintiff is able to establish a link between her development of Kidney Stones and Yaz or Yasmin, Bayer’s problems with these drugs could be far from over.
