What can be the cause of weakened muscle and kidney functioning?

Answer

The kidneys act as filters to rid the body of wastes.
Over time, high blood pressure can narrow and thicken the blood vessels of the kidneys.
The kidneys filter less fluid, and waste builds up in the blood.
The kidneys may fail altogether.
When this happens, medical treatment (dialysis) or a kidney transplant may be needed.
