You can get more specific answers from the site when you provide bore specific background information.
Some kidney problems have a genetic component but the inheritance pattern would be diagnosis specific. Some kidney problems can be acquired through disease or things like diabetes. You may want to explore the issue with a genetic counselor after you get all the information together.
