Dear Neelu,
In widal test we detect trace for typhoid causing organism SALMONELLA , now in INDIA which is endemic area it can also be found in normal person.
so we have to dilute the blood.
FOR TYPHI O-If after more than 80 times dilution (1 ml blood, >80 ml diluent) still organism present then it is diagnosed as typhoid.
FOR TYPHI H- It is >1:120
If you are in India then certainly your result is within normal range.
Normal value of-
Hb-10.5 to 12.5 in female in India
Leukocyte- 4,000-11,000/mm3
platelet- 2.5 lakh to 4.5 lakh
So all the results are within normal range for you.
Best of luck.
