Brief Answer:
Interpretation of Widal test results

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic

Your test results for widal test is in normal range.
However, this cannot rule out the possibility of typhoid.
A single Widal result cannot rule out or confirm the possibility of typhoid fever.
The Widal test need to be repeated at least 10 days after the date on which first test was done. If the repeat widal test shows a four fold increase in widal test titres, then typhoid fever is confirmed ,especially if you are in endemic area like XXXXXXX

Blood and urine cultures to look for salmonella typhi and paratyphi also need to be done.

Hope this answers your question
