Diagnosis of Huntington's Disease

Diagnosis of Huntington's Disease

Diagnosis can be confirmed by genetic testing via blood tests. This will confirm whether or not you have inherited the faulty gene. If you have inherited the faulty gene then you will develop Huntington's. Many people choose not to be tested, especially if it is known to run in the family. These tests cannot confirm what age the symptoms of Huntington's disease will develop. Therefore, many people believe that they would rather enjoy life and may even die of other causes before the disease develops.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans or computerised tomography (CT) scans can be used as the disease progresses to identify affected areas of the brain.
