The research I've seen indicates that high protein consumption does not pose adverse effects if your kidneys are healthy. If your kidneys are already damaged, however, high protein consumption can further the damage.

If I recall correctly, the most common causes for kidney damage are high blood glucose and high blood pressure.

As an aside: A Paleo diet should not be a high protein diet. It should be a high fat diet.
