Thanks for asking in healthcaremagic forum
Usually Tuberculosis is diagnosed by sputum smear and X-ray tests not antibody tests. I think you have confused typhoid with tuberculosis. Typhois also diagnosed with widal test. So, please send me the details regarding the test report for further suggestions. All the best.
