Blood sample collected for Widal test is added in two separate flasks. A specially cultivated serum is added in each flask. This serum allows the blood samples to clot only in presence of either antigen H or antigen O.

Indications of undergoing Widal Test:

  • Fever for a week or more, not responding to medication
  • Persistent headache
  • Severe nausea and vomiting
  • Loose stool
  • Bleeding from rectum
  • Debilitation
  • Weakness

Collectively, all these symptoms point towards a diagnosis of enteric fever. Patients may give a history of having consumed food, water or drinks from unhygienic surroundings. Typhoid tends to spread via means of contaminated food and water. Contamination occurs when stool of any infected person comes in contact with any source of food or water. In order to avoid typhoid, it is important to follow toilet hygiene and avoid consuming food and water from unhygienic sources.

Immediate diagnosis and treatment is advised in order to curb the disorder in time. This helps in avoiding health complications. Patients presenting with symptoms and relevant history suggestive of typhoid fever are subjected to a detailed physical examination. The physician will examine patient’s digestive system in detail to rule out any other diagnosis. Complicated cases of typhoid may be referred to an infectious disease specialist.

Diagnosis of typhoid can only be confirmed if blood or stool tests yield a positive result. Widal is one of the most trusted confirmatory tests by doctors to diagnose typhoid. The test should only be performed if advised by a physician. Pathology laboratories may refuse to perform this test for patients who do not produce a valid prescription. Widal is not the only diagnostic test which can confirm presence of enteric fever.

C.B.C, Typhidot test, stool culture, are some other tests which may be advised to patients suffering from enteric fever. Antibiotics, antipyretics, nutritional supplements and pain killers, are prescribed for treatment of enteric fever.
