Does he know what kind of arthritis he has (there are over 100 different kinds)?  If so, has he had his bloodwork tested for any auto-immune issues?  He needs a total work up, hopefully by a rheumatologist, and may need immune suppressant drugs to help his kidney issues and to stop any further disability.
