How are you? What are the symptoms present? The Widal test is usually done to detect the presence of antibodies against Salmonella in a patient;s serum. The antigen present in the antiserum provokes antibody production inside the patient and raised levels of antibody helps in diagnosing the serum for infection. Agglutination with AH and BH antigens records Salmonella paratyphi infection. It is best that you discuss the result with your doctor for proper evaluation. A variety of factors such as symptoms, medical history and results of other diagnostic tests are important considerations. Take care and do keep us posted.
