does platlets count between 700000 to 1000000 for over two years dangerous? What shell I do? I look very healthy!

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Having a very high platlet count is indicative of an inflammatory reaction-- probably to HIV (though this is uncommon), perhaps to another condition. Some patients with thrombocytosis are at risk of having blood clots... as such, this condition should be monitored and have appropriate medical evaluation. BY
