A dog needs to have the HD gene. However if the gene is present, then environmental issues can assist to develop the dysplasia such as being over weight, hard jumps etc.
Check her pedigree, if generations have low scores for both HD and ED then she will most likely not be a candidate for developing dysplasia.
if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
