In brief: Vessels in both

Without an actual exam, I can't give specific medical advice on your particular health.
Same things affect vessels EVERYWHERE. So, while strokes, or heart attacks don't hit the kidney. The same bad vessels are in all organs. Hi BP, diabetes, and cholesterol all clog vessels everywhere and affect all the organs (heart, brain, kidney). Treatable. Or such bad heart disease, no blood gets to kidney.
