In brief: Yes
Exercise has a profound impact on health and well-being.
Regardless of your health and fitness status, it is possible for you to improve your overall well being and health with regular exercise. As the blood is circulated by exercise, toxins and other waste products are eliminated more efficiently and metabolic functions improve. This allows essential nutrients to be transported more efficiently.

In brief: Yes
Being healthy through diet & exercise always helps with chronic diseases such as kidney disease.
Furthermore, since the majority of kidney disease is caused by diabetes or high blood pressure, reducing your blood pressure and maintaining a healthy weight and cholesterol level will help maintain your kidneys. Exercise is but one part of that solution.
