Anemia: If someone have low hemoglobin called anemia, and as a result high platelet count called thrombocytosis, usual cause is iron deficiency. Iron deficiency anemia can lead to a stress or reactive thrombocytosis which will get better with iron replacement. Get your iron studies and ferritin checked. Thanks.
