Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Salmonella infection can be detected by testing a sample of your stool. However, most people have recovered from their symptoms by the time the test results return.

If your doctor suspects that you have a salmonella infection in your bloodstream, he or she may suggest testing a sample of your blood for the bacteria.
