In brief: It is reactive
Functional medical perspective - high platelet count means there is increased risk of thrombosis - blood clots but I have seen this as secondary due to inflammatory response and it gets better with vitamin E therapy do vit e 400 units twice daily, vit D3 6000 units twice daily, and recheck your levels in 2 - 3 weeks.
