Blood problem: High platelets come from infection, inflammation, bleeding, iron deficiency, tumors, and various blood diseases. If there is an electrolyte problem from platelets it usually is high potassium as platelets have hight potassium content. High platelets won't cause high calcium directly. High calcium can be from excess vitamin d, hormone problems or tumors.
