    Have you considered how many blood thinning supplements your dad is on while on an anticoagulant med? A multi would be the least of concerns.

    q
    I gave him your advise about taking a multivitamin. He got some yesterday. He got the generic version of a "men over 50" multivitamin. I also told him to drink a lot more water.
    He tells me he's had instances of falling down now. Hasn't gotten hurt yet. He lives alone and I hope his health will improve soon.

    Here's an update on my Dad's situation:

    It got bad enough that he finally went to the doctor. Blood test for "C-Reactive Protein, P" showed a number of 35.4, which is well above normal. Normal is 8, with 10 or more being a sign of a serious problem. He has been prescribed a steroid medication for a month. We'll see what happens.

    I hope he had other blood tests done as well to help with a direction of what could be wrong.

    How is he doing on the steroid at this point?

    He did, and he's doing much better now. I just saw him yesterday which is 1 week since he started taking the steroid. He even said he noticed an improvement after taking it for 1 day.
    By the way, the diagnosis was that he has Polymyalgia Rheumattica.
