There is no way to prevent the onset of HD if a person has inherited the gene for the disorder. Medications aimed at slowing and treating the disease progression are being studied. A prospective parent with HD or a family history of HD can seek genetic counseling when deciding whether or not to have children. Genetic counseling is extremely important since half of the children of an affected parent are at risk for inheriting HD.
