Huntingtons Disease is a degenerative brain disorder, which affects the nervous system. It is a disorder which causes a rapid decrease of brain cells. People with Huntingtons Disease can suffer from Tremors, Writhing and it can sometimes lead to Dementia (loss of sanity). Unfortunately, only one Huntingtons gene has to be inheritied sor someone to suffer with the condition. So far there is no cure.
It is advisible that people have their Genes checked early on for Huntingtons disease, as most people only find out they have it in their 40's-50's.
