General & Family Physician 's  Response
Platelets play a fundamental role in the clotting of blood.
If the number of platelets is too low, excessive bleeding can occur. However, if the number of platelets is too high, blood clots can form (thrombosis), which may obstruct blood vessels and result in stroke.
