High Platelet Count

Platelets are small cells in the blood that help with clotting and prevent continuous bleeding. In some conditions, the body produces too many platelets. When that happens, it is called secondary thrombocytosis. The normal platelet count is 150,000 to 400,000 per micro liter of blood. A count above this range is considered high platelet count.
