Need more info: It would be helpful to know the results of complete blood count. High platelet count is often a side effect of iron deficiency. All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thrombocytosis/basics/definition/con-20032674.
