Does hep c raise lymphs on a CBC with diff and cause low platelet counts on the same test.?

Possibly: An active viral infection such as acute hepatitis c could raise your lymphocyte count. It would not lower your platelets unless you had cirrhosis which would imply long standing hepatitis c. Therefore, it's unlikely that the two abnormalities are related but it's not impossible either.
