Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe,  two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels.

What are the causes of macrocytic anemia for elderly?  If no vitamins defficiency, no RBC breakdown, no thyroid and liver problems & normal wbc

See hematologist: As my previous answer, your dad should see a hematologist for his anemia. Work-up including a bone marrow biopsy should be done- one of the thing we should rule out is possibility of myelodysplastic syndrome. However we are not able to give you more specific answer without seeing all the complete result of previous work-up and examining your father. So, start by asking pmd to refer to hematologist. ...Read more

Yes, you do: Start by seeing the family doctor to rule out any physical cause for your depression. Your family doctor can refer you to a psychiatrist for a full psychiatric evaluation and to a psychologist for psychotherapy. Please don't postpone this too long. The longer you wait the harder depression can be to treat. Best wishes. ...Read more
