In brief: Possibly

It depends on what type of "kidney disease" you are describing.
Kidney infections and kidney stones could cause discomfort on the side of the kidney affected. Kidney cysts usually do not cause pressure, and rarely kidney tumors would cause pressure. Kidney dysfunction such as forms of kidney failure usually do not cause pain or pressure.

In brief: Rarely

Generally pressure on the right side of the abdomen is not from kidney- could be from gas, or other issues.
