High blood pressure can damage blood vessels in the kidneys, reducing their ability to work properly. When the force of blood flow is high, blood vessels stretch so blood flows more easily. Eventually, this stretching scars and weakens blood vessels throughout the body, including those in the kidney. If blood vessels in kidneys are damaged, they may stop removing wastes and extra fluid from the body.

In addition, the rate of kidney failure due to high blood pressure keeps increasing.
