Son's test results troubling

My son recently underwent blood work that has come back with the following results:

Thyroid hormone levels were normal

Anti-Thyroid Antibody Profile:

Anti-Thyroidperoxidase    3.8                Ref Range= 0-5.5
Anti-Thyroglobulin           17.3 (H)              Ref Range=0-4.0

He was also given a blood count with differential that returned some elevated levels:

Toatl WBC         8                                 Ref Range= 5-14
Lymphocytes   48.9 (H)                          Ref Range= 28.0-48.0
Monocytes      11.7  (H)                         Ref Range= 3.0-6.0
Eosinophils      5.85  (H)                        Ref Range= 0.00-3.0

His doctor said his allergy test did show a slightly increased antibody to egg white and that could cause some of the abnormalities in the Dif.  Is there any tie in between the Dif levels and the antithyroglobulin being so high or should we be looking for something more serious?  

Any info would be helpful.

May be he had mononucleosis. Mono is usually linked to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), but can also be caused by other organisms such as cytomegalovirus (CMV). I don't think Anti-Thyroglobulin  antibodies are related. Did he had any kind of symptoms? did he test for liver enzymes? Yes allergy can cause high eosinophils.

His only symptom was his sinuses always being what his Ped. referred to as "sounding swollen."  He doesn't have a runny nose he sounds like he is impacted and alwyas has a dark bruise looking strip across the bridge of his nose.  He also has a history of vocal cord dysfunction (cords don't spread apart when he draws in a breath)  This causes him to sound like he is wheezing on inspiration.  Asthma meds have no effect.
