Iron deficiency can increase platelets as can inflammation; high altitude and smoking can raise the red count---a good history and physical are needed. Good luck. ...Read more
Blood tests show high mean platelet volume, low platelet count, high urobilinogen, high WBC, high clumpy platelet morphology. Related? conerns?
Why the tests?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it might have helped to have the actual values rather than high and low. Why were the tests done?

500000, right?: This is higher than most folks, but "normal" here is a curious idea -- lab reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall a little bit outside on either end. If you're iron-deficient, that would be the obvious explanation, even if you're not significantly anemic. If not it's something to follow, or your physician may want to do a gene test for essential thrombocythemia. ...Read more

Not blood's fault: If CBC normal as you say, more likely due to a change in the oral environment/ dental hygiene. Consider this to see if any change in brush/floss frequency or duration, change in tobacco or alcohol product use, or change in life stressors. In the interim, be sure you are brushing twice daily and flossing daily--this should stop bleeding--if not, consult dentist for exam and advice. ...Read more
Hematology workup: The elevation of these 2 parameters of the CBC (complete blood count) may reflect infection or inflammation. However, depending on the chronicity and extent of rise, it may also be associated with bone marrow problems such as myeloproliferative diseases. I suggest a hematology consultation and workup to sort out the underlying cause(s). ...Read more
