In brief: Acute Injury
Hypotension or low blood pressure can cause underperfusion of the kidney leading to acute kidney injury or acute tubular necrosis.
Speak with your physician about these possibilities.

In brief: Damage, but only…
The kidney is exquisitely sensitive to blood pressure.
It is one of the core organs which helps regulate this important biological parameter. Very low blood pressures provide inadequate blood flow to the kidneys and cause them to experience dysfunction. This is normally temporary, but if the BP stays low, it can become permanent. Generally, these are pressures less than 80mmhg systolic (top #).
