Individuals who have Vibrio parahaemolyticus food poisoning normally experience mild to moderate cases of infection. However, those with weak immune systems have an increased risk of a serious, even life-threatening infection. In addition, persons with diabetes, liver disease, or peptic ulcers have a potential risk of severe infection.
