couple thoughts:
ensure the d3 is 25(OH)D3, not 1,25(OH)2D3.
you can test iron and/or ferritin, decide which you mean and let the doc know.
i would also recommend zinc, and uric acid.
the rest looks fine to me!

EBV may not tell you anything. Too many people have it without any effects. I may be wrong but I think its a left-over from getting Chicken Pox.

Thank you very much for your replies.

EBV-EBNA-1 - because of these

but correlation between EBV antibodies and lesions is weak, test sample was small, timesonline article looks too dramatic
