Any Kidney Disease: Obviously hypertension can cause kidney injury and thus induce protein losses from the kidney. Almost all glomerular (filter) diseases of the kidney--cause damage to the vessels of the kidney filter inducing a loss of protein in the urine. In addition the kidney in response to the blood vessel injury is to demand more flow through the production of hormones raising the blood pressure.
