High blood pressure can also damage the filtration system of kidney, especially the glomerular. Thus the glomerular cannot well filtrate the waste and toxins out. At the same time, protein will leak out to the urine, causing damage to kidney.
With high blood pressure, you are more likely to develop kidney disease and the kidney disease have more chance to get worse with high blood pressure.
