    hi Azeez,widal test is used to know if a patient has typhoid or not.its reliability is however low.Patients' symptoms is better used for diagnosis.urinalysis is used to check for urinary tract infection in males and females and other conditions in females.if protein is high, it can be pointing to urinary tract infection or kidney problem. Here too,patient's complain will help in guiding the diagnosis.
