Yes If obstructing : If its an obstructing renal stone causing hydronephrosis, urinary collecting system dilatation, you are most likely also have associated symptoms of flank pain possibly radiating to the groin, +/- fever and blood tinged urine.The stone and the pain associated with it can cause your pressure to rise. BP will fall back to baseline when the stone passes and the pain resolves.No if it's not obstructing.

No: A renal function lab would be unlikely to show a developing kidney stones. Most kidney stones are diagnosed because of severe pain in the flank radiating down to the groin. They can be seen on xray, CT scan or sometimes ultrasound. Blood tests are usually normal.

Need a Tx Center: You need to be evaluated by the transplant team at an approved transplant center. They will go over the process and describe what is required to be wait listed for a kidney. One early suggestion, avoid any blood transfusions until you are evaluated. If you become sensitized from an elective blood transfusion, you may wait years or never receive a kidney.

Examples include: Poly cystic kidney disease and fabry's disease. Also, many heritable illnesses like diabetes and hypertension and high cholesterol could precipitate kidney disease. Also, bad habits running in families e.g. Unhealthy eating habits will cause obesity and increase the risk of kidney disease.
