WBC 30.3 down from 36

Everything else is in range

A nonreactive test means you lack the antibody to hepatitis C so you have never been exposed. IgG is an antibody produced indicating previous exposure but not active infection so you have been exposed to HSV 1 and 2. The WBC count is elevated but not to a degree that is concerning. Elevated rates up to 50-70 are significant. Your albumin level is normal and that is good. The importance of the low protein level is unclear since the albumin level is normal. For more information about the WBC, I am sure you can speak with your hematologist

Does that mean I have HSV 1 & 2 OR BOTH? NO SYMTOMS NOW OR EVER

No, you don't have the active infection but yes you have been exposed to them at some point in your life and without any symptoms probably never had an active infection.
