Hi - I recenntly had a CDC. Everything was in the optimal range for me , a 30 year old female. However, my platelelets were at 674 k/cu mm. What does this mean? Also my WBC was lower than the 7.3 optimal amount, at 5.8. I am scared. Please advise.

A low wbc count can mean many things. It could be that you are fighting off a virus. High platelets can cause abnormal clotting as well as other indications. Has your doctor had a discussion with you about these lab results? Make an appointment and go over these labs with your doctor. Anything that is out of range should be rechecked and further work up should be done if they are out of range twice.
