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!
