Thanks for posting you query.

Your CBC is normal Hb is adequate. Whether you have done any test to rule out HIV? ELISA or other antibody test like TRIDOT or oracheck or HIV DUO test will reveal your HIV test. Platelet count increase alone not indicating HIV. In HIV platelet count will be reduced quite often.

If HIV Antibody tests are negative, then you need not worry about HIV at all.
