high blood platelet count
I recently had a routine check up and found out that my blood platelets count is 987,000 which is above the normal range of 150,000-450,000. I am a female, 62 years old, and do not have any medical condition. I was wondering what would be the cause for this high number of platelets and how can I reduce it? I also have to mention that I take a 75mg aspirin on a daily basis.
I googled high blood platelets and the result was a lot of scary information.
