Yes because of its ability to cause low blood pressure


Actually low blood pressure has nothing to do with it. High blood sugar damages the network of fine blood vessels found in the kidneys . It also causes the body to eliminate excess sugar through

urine, so the kidneys can become fatigued. Long periods of high blood sugar can lead to kidney damage that in turn may cause high blood pressure.
