Need results: It would have helped had you provided the actual result, i.e. number. Platelet count can be elevated in iron deficiency. If you are a female that is a likely explanation. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test as s/he knows more about your health.

It depends: There is a wide range over which platelet counts can go before raising any concerns. Normally they range between 150, 000 to 400,000. if your count is over 450,000, get it rechecked . If the count rises above 500,000, you should get yourself checked by a hematologist(blood cancer specialiist
