Q.

blood test result

My toddler blood exams (2.5 year old) reveal all the components in the normal value, but 481.000 mm/3 PLT (platelet) from the 150-400.000 mm/3 the normal value. It is this a preoccupation situation? What does a high platelet count mean? Thank you previously.

You do not need to be concerned about this slightly high platelet count. Platelets are the cells in the blood that are important in blood clotting.
