Low platlet count

I did regular blood check up last week. I had Plalate count of 1.67 lac and hemoglobin level of 16.  How is it possible of hemoglobin at the higher side and platlet count at the lower side? Today i went for blood donation and they refused saying i have platlet count of 1.47 lac and i am not eligible for blood donation.

Your platelets are in normal range. (normal being 1.4 lac to 4.0 lac.) hemoglobin and platelet are not directly related to each other. so your reports are absolutely fine.
