OK
The kidney will be related to bloating only if you have renal failure, which would show up on blood tests.
Bloating is usually related to a change in diet, but can also be due to other bowel problems, such as small bowel overgrowth, or indigestion, or IBS, irritable bowel syndrome.
It can be due to many other causes, from parasites to new onset diabetes.
I would discuss the bloating with your doc.
