Just a number: Numbers are just numbers, without much meaning unless a person sees the bigger picture. The reference range for platelet counts is usually 150,000-450,000 platelets (per microliter of blood). That means 95% of normal people have their platelet counts inside that range, and 5% of normal people have their counts outside that range. A normal person with a count of 175,000 can call it a normal count.
