What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?

Unclear question: If you are talking about total serum proteins, it may be because you were dehydrated due to not drinking water for the fasting blood test. The other major cause is increase in gamma globulins due to inflammation or tumor of the plasma cells. The starting point of the investigation would be serum protein electrophoresis.

High calcium: Levels may mean that you are slightly dehydrated, or it may be real. Your albumin is normal so it is not a factor in falsely low calcium levels. At 10.5 it may be a normal variant (reference range 10.4). I would have it checked again in 1 month to be sure. ...Read more

This takes me back to urine infection or some other type of genitourinary infection. ...Read more
