In brief: Yes

Problems in the bladder, particularly a condition called urinary retention can affect the kidneys and their ability to properly filter (known as obstructive uropathy).
If someone were to be having problems believed due to the bladder, it is certainly worthwhile to discuss with your personal physician so that it can be further defined.

In brief: Yes

Different bladder issues can affect the rest of the body.
An infection or stone, for example, can affect the kidneys. Cancer of the bladder can affect any nearby organs which can affect more distant organs. It depends on what the cause of the bladder "problem" is.
