I’ve had counts above my typical that were around 90-110k and was told by hema that I appeared dehydrated based on results of metabolic panel tests that were taken at the same time. Also, RBCs get elevated.
Jay when thought I had a DVT it was due to an overseas flight [Colorado to San Francisco to Tokyo], my platelet count wasn't even near 100k and I was on prednisone - not sure why because we always walked around the plane and did not just sit. By the time I got to my hematologist in Tokyo the swelling was down at my knee and it was no longer red & hot so there is a question as to whether it was or wasn't a DVT but it was put in my chart as a DVT.
