In brief: Harms blood vessels

Promotes arteriosclerosis which reduces blood flow to kidneys ; heart which promotes hypertension which in turn damages the kidneys.
Of course smoking improves your chances of developing lung cancer which can spread to the kidneys and kill you. Think of the generous kidney donor who has given you life.Transplanted kidneys have enough of a rough time without imposing additional unnecessary risk.
