Brief Answer: Clear Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting a query directly to me. First question: What do you mean by H-B blood test. Is it Hemoglobin test? There is nothing like H-B that I had heard of in my practice? I am sure that is misspelt. Bad crab cakes can be a source of infection. The most common and important symptom noted in GI infection is vomiting. Pl come back to me with more details on first question. I am waiting.
