In an adult, normal blood platelet count is about 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microliter. Platelets help in clotting blood. When you injure yourself, the blood stops flowing when platelets, along with other clotting factors, forms a plug in the wound and stops the blood from flowing out of the body.
If the number of platelets falls, a person may have difficulty in stopping bleeding. If a person has a low platelet count, he/she should be very careful about wounds, as even a little cut may bleed for long enough to cause a lot of blood loss.
Some disease related to a low platelet count are:
Chronic bleeding stomach ulcer
Some renal diseases

If the platelet count is higher than normal, it may be because of myeloproliferative disorder. This may cause thromocytosis where blood clots form and block the arteries. The number of platelets increase if you exercise strenuously or live at a high altitude. The number also increases in postpartum women and in women using some contraceptives or taking oestrogen.
