Hello mam to detect the typhoid fever have different phase different test should be perform 1 week of onset of symptoms: blood culture 2 week of onset of symptoms: blood culture ,feces culture and widal test (low sensitivity) 3 week of on set of symptoms: widal test, blood culture and feces culture mam you are still worried about mild fever I would like recommended you to do monitoring every hours your body temperature and note down in one page for 12 hours of day for 2 days I suggest instead of going with so many kind of test and tests are going normal than we should check what is actual temperature of your body instead of just taking meds and wasting money behind laboratory thank you please give feedback and consult anytime add me in your favourite doctor list: um1327.

Dear user yes you can. Try to make at home so that it is hygienic. Don’t eat from outside as typhoid speeds from unclean food and water. Thank you.

Dear Lybrate user please repeat your widal test if increasing trends of antigen titres, then it suggests persistence of infection and antibiotics are required to be taken for a few more days you can consult me for more queries/ medications online by clicking on my photo and booking an appointment however, if you found my answer helpful do leave a thanks/ positive feedback as it helps me with my practice.

Hello sir/madam, after typhoid medication can eat dry fruits, like badam kaju raisins etc, please clarify my issue, thank you.

You may eat these. No problem with regard to medications. Ideally easily digestible food products are recommended during typhoid. If you don't face any bowel discomfort after consuming these, you can eat them.

Your blood reports looks like you may have less iron content. You can use any iron syrup. And widal test is not being considered as per new guidelines. It’s not useful for testing typhoid. But even then your reports are normal.

Hi, Body weakness is more markedly seen in post typhoid recovered patients. Take protein rich food. Do some leg raising exercises which improves the back flow of blood in the lower limbs. Take tab.Aswagandha 1tab twice a day after food for two weeks.
