Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. It usually results from uric acid depositing in the joints. Because of the declined kidney function, the kidneys can not remove those waste products from the blood timely so that uric acid builds up.

Besides, you can use steroids or immunosuppressant to inhibit inflammation, but they usually have many side effects if used for long-term.

Moreover, it is anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, blood vessel dilation and extracellular matrix degradation to protect your kidney function.
