Typhoid Test

Typhoid  An Infectious and Often Life Threatening Disease

The reports have revealed that in countries like India, Pakistan and Egypt, every year, about 200,000 people die from typhoid disease. It is a medical condition which causes severe illness in the small intestine, gallbladder accompanied by high fever, due to bacterial infection. The main factor responsible for the spread of this disease is the insanitary environmental conditions in the surroundings. Water and food contamination transports the Salmonella Paratyphi bacteria to the human body and causes the infection. It is important to get the typhoid test/ typhoid diagnosis done as soon as a person encounters high fever, abdominal pain and diarrhea like conditions.

Even the infected people become the carriers of bacteria, that releases in their stools and they contribute to spreading the disease in their surroundings. It has been estimated that about 3-5% of people who become the patients of this acute illness contaminate the water supply through their stools. Contamination of water hampers the hygienic food supply and hence the spread of disease is evident.

Moreover, an infected person may spread the infection in the surroundings, therefore, it is necessary that the family members must also go through typhoid diagnosis, to prevent the aggravation of the situation.
