People with family history of Graves’ disease are at risk of developing it. But even more common is to have a family history of any other autoimmune disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, etc.
Being prone to an autoimmune disease is a hereditable trait. So be aware of the risk and keep an eye on the symptoms!
Consult with your Primary Care Provider or an endocrinologist if you have any concerns. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent serious complications.
