Default Suggestions for sick axolotl PLEASE

Hello, we have an albino axolotl. He's an adult and been very healthy for close to a year with us now. Started to notice his pretty gills had become very small. He then started, suddenly, to refuse food - of any sort. Tried everything. Then he ate some small worms every other day for about a week. Then he would grab the worm, then spit it out, and proceed to look like he was gulping, but with no food in his mouth. Now he refuses to even attempt to eat. He's now very thin and I feel like we're just waiting for him to die. It's sad and I feel awful. Water levels all test out fine. No idea what's going on with him. He is reddish/pinkish and I honestly came remember if he's always been that tone or if he used to be more white. Any suggestions, please. I fear it may already be too late.
