Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

People with RA do have about an additional 5% risk of having kidney problems than the general population, due to the inflammatory nature of RA.
Kidney conditions usually affect both kidneys. You will need to talk to your doctor about your specific case - there are always exceptions.
