High Blood Pressure and Kidney Problems

The function of the kidney is to filter and separate the good and the bad. Your kidney also has arteries. When blood is pumped uncontrollably through these arteries for a long period of time, these arteries weaken and harden. Hence, they cannot provide sufficient blood to the kidney, damaging the kidney.

An interesting fact: Kidney produces a hormone that regulates blood pressure, this process fails when the kidney is damaged.
