Hi
the platelets are in normal range, u should get worry when your kid platelets come below 40,000.
there is no medicine to improve platelets count. only blood transfusion of packed cells will be the treatment option when suffering from low platelets counts.
all his lab parameters appears to be normal .
thank you
