It's possible. : Although the hormones made by the kidney are primarily involved in creating blood cells and regulating blood pressure, we know this is a complex organ with many functions that are unknown to science. We see that dialysis patients, who require artificial kidneys to cleanse their blood, have neurohormonal, psychomotor, and mood issues that clearly relate to the decreased function of the kidney.
