Here are some ...: OAB itself would not cause kidney failure for sure. But, poor lifestyle with metabolic syndrome (DM, high BP, obesity, high triglyceride, and low HDL) plus poor emptying bladder + recurrent UTI, etc. will increase the chance to get kidney failure (but very slow). So, no matter who, what, and how you're, practice low-risk healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence / obsession as key to longevity.

Yes, OAB may be unable to accommodate (hold) the urine of >1-2 OZs - as one of the hallmark symptoms of OAB.
