Nothing in the research I've done indicates any heredity link to GBS.

No, not at all. It does not seem to run in families.

No although there are instances of other family members being diagnosed

It is not. However, a predisposition for autoimmune disorders in general does include a hereditary factor.

I don’t know. At first, that’s what I was told, but now they are saying that it is not a hereditary disease. So, I’m afraid the jury is still out on that.

Regardless, once you have it, it’s got you. So where you decide to go from there is paramount to your recovery.
