In brief: Many possibilities

Hi. I recommend your friend see a good diagnostician sooner than later. Those symptoms could reflects problems with the heart, lungs, kidneys, etc, etc.
Serious conditions should be evaluated first. I hope he diligently controls his diabetes, blood pressure, lipids, and doesn't smoke. Please encourage him to see a good doctor!
