The Voice of my father is coming very low, he doesn't have cold or cough. He was so speaking fine a few weeks ago. It's just in last one week that his voice was muffled and today it's almost suppressed.

Other includes voice overuse, smoking, infection, GERD etc. Where inflammation of vocal cord occur which leads to difficult vibration of vocal cord leading to loss of voice pitch. The best treatment for this condition is to stay well hydrated and to rest or reduce voice use. Consult a ENT specialist to get evaluated and find out the underlying pathology.
