HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Typhoid would be diagnosed using blood and stool samples. Multiple samples are normally used to make sure that the result is accurate.

The samples are sent to the lab so that they can determine whether the bacteria that causes this infection , is present.

I hope this helps
