Requested test after blood work results

If routine blood work comes back with signs of elevated insulin levels and low levels of vitamin D is it normal for the Dr. to request HIV and Hep-C test.

For med history proposes; I have never used drugs and have only been sexually active with the same woman for the last 23 years.
