A mildly high platelet count is possible with IBD.
"A high platelet count may be referred to as thrombocytosis. This is usually the result of an existing condition (also called secondary or reactive thrombocytosis) such as:
Cancer, most commonly lung, gastrointestinal, ovarian, breast or lymphoma
Anemia, in particular iron-deficiency anemia and hemolytic anemia
Inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or rheumatoid arthritis
Infectious diseases such as tuberculosis
If an individual has had their spleen removed surgically
Use of birth control pills (oral contraceptives)"
