Can spinal steno sis cause kidney problems?

I'm 69 years old and in very good physical health except that I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis 10-15 years ago. I've done pretty well so far, except that my latest blood test showed some problems with kidney filtration. I am having pain in the right kidney area, same side as my L-4, L-5 stenosis. Can spinal stenosis cause kidney problems?

No spinal stenosis cannot cause Kidney problem unless you have taken a lot of pain killer in the past for your spine problem.. In most of time kidney problem is caused by diabetes, hypertension, kidney stone or medications like pain killer... Spinal cord stenosis doesn't directly related to kidney problems..
