Brief Answer:
Hello. Mild borderline high is taken as normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear
I have gone through the query. So normal range of platelet counts lies upto 450 and a mild elevation should be taken as XXXXXXX variant. Platelets have a variable rate of production and destruction and mild up and low is not significant.
Thanks and regards
