Thrombocytopenia

I am male 24 years old.
Haemoglobin: 14.6 GM/DL
Leucocyte Total Count 6400 per cu. mm. neutrophil: 65%
lymphocyte: 31%
monocyte: 02%
eosinophil: 02%
But my platelet count is 110000 per cu. mm.
Is this abnormal or I require treatment ?
I don't have any major viral disease, cancer etc.

Hi!
Any count above one lakh is considered normal for platelets. So, in your case it is normal. However, if in doubt, please discuss with your doctor.
If your doctor considers this count low, then the cause for the low platelet count has to be identified; whether it is due to less production at the bone marrow or high breakdown or due to platelets being trapped in the spleen. The treatment will depend on the cause. Common causes are Vit B12 and folic acid deficiency, leukemias, lymphomas, decreased production of thrombopoietin by liver, Dengue fever, HIV, hemolytic anemias, etc. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
