This isDr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I amhere to address your concerns and provide great service.
Increased platelet count is commonly with iron deficiency anemia.
Bone marrow produces lot of blood cells as response.
The platelet count also may go up as a result temporarily.
Another explanation, the nucleated immature red blood cells are often mistaken as platelets in the blood count causing false elevation of platelet.
The values are not concerning still.
You should start taking your iron supplements and you should see the values coming back to 'normal' as more red blood cells undergo maturation.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
