blood tests

I had the following blood work done in the ER last night. Please give me your feed back. This doesn't make any sense to me. Does any of the test results below indicate possible HIV infection?

Please note that I have worked in the middle east for the past year.

Basic Metabolic Blood Test
Sodium 138
Potassium 3.7
Chloride 101.0
CO2 28.4
Glucose 112 H
BUN 18
Creat Serum 0.91
Calcium 10.0
eGFR  >60&


WBC 6.7
RBC 4.83
Hgb 15.3
Hct 44
MCH 32 H
RDW 12.5
Platelet 221
Absolute Baso 0.0
Absolute Eos 0.1
Absolute Gran 3.0
Absolute Lymph 2.8
Absolute Mono 0.7
Basophil % 0.4
Eosinophil % 1.9
Granulocyte % 44.4 L
Lymphocyte 42.3 H
MCV 92
MPV 8.5
Monocyte % 11.0

D-Dimer < 0.22

Troponin I
Troponin I <0.15 on both baseline and follow up tests

The ER stated that they ruled out my heart as the cause of this issue.

Is there anything note-worthy from my test results?

Should I be tested for anything else?

the reason i am posting this here is because the lymphocyte count is elevated slightly.

please give me your feedback.

i have read that elevated monocyte and lymphocyte values indicate infection or chronic infection.

do these levels seem like a possible infection? if so, how far along?

If you're trying to figure out if you have HIV, then the results shouldn't make sense to you. Nothing that you provided has any value in determing your HIV status.

If you want to know whether or not you have HIV, then you need to take an HIV antibody test. It's that simple. You're not going to be able to figure it out from your metabolic profile, CBC, or anything else.
