Brief Answer:
Reports suggestive of bacterial infection and vitamin D deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to the HCM

I have gone through your daughter's lab reports. They are suggestive of bacterial infection along with vitamin D deficiency. The Widal test is considered normal and doesn't need any intervention at present. Urine test is necessary to rule out urinary tract infection.

The reports should be clinically correlated. Usually we recommend emperical use of antibiotics such as cefixime for 5-7 days in cases of fever without focus and such derangement of lab reports. Also, vitamins D supplement such as Cholecalciferol are prescribed.

Hopefully this will help you. I would be happy to help you in any further questions.
Take care

Hi, I'm a 53 year old woman and I had a very dry throat a couple of months ago, I constantly had to try and clear my throat. It was extremely uncomfortable. It lasted for longer than a month. I have in the past having had to clear my throat a lot as it's very dry, but the severe dryness is now back again. It's as if it's a dry patch that will not feel lubricated no matter what. I try throat pastilles and I drink water. The doctors are of no help.
There are white cells in my urine. Even that doesn't seem to bother the doctor.
I've just started taking prescribed vitamin D3 for deficiency.
Many Thanks, Megan.
