Friend is in need

I have a friend 70, male, active and overall healthy...

Several years ago he developed Vitiligo and looking back he said that he has had arthritis like pain in the past just not very long or intense.

Recently he was diagnosed with Hi blood sugar and changed his eating to fix it - blood sugar went ape and then arthritis and muscle pain hit him like a ton of bricks. They now have him on Met but he dose not know if that has worked yet.

Rheumo Doc has diagnosed him with a type of arthritis (will get name when I can) but ALL of this together makes me wonder about auto immune stuff. His son has done some online reading about AI disorders and many seem to include his ailments/symptoms. One article even said a little insulin was their fix.

Anyone out there got any ideas on what or where he could look/ask for info?

thnx - ish
