Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

There may be multiple cause of fatigue in your father
•     Thalassemia so get a complete blood count done
•     Fever and fatigue indicate towards the chest infection so consult physician urgently
•     Because of presence of Bronchiectasis there may be laboured breathing leading to exhaustion, fatigue and increase appetite

If his symptoms continue inspite of correction of above things there is need to rule out Depression which can present as increase fatigability and change in appetite.

Wish you Good Health
