About HD


The good news is there is always something that can be done for a patient with Huntington’s Disease. Treating HD and its symptoms commonly begins with medical care and medications that can start at $4 per month. Therapy has shown positive impacts, especially interpersonal or cognitive behavioral therapy. Proper management of HD symptoms will make a huge difference in the quality of life of the affected individual and his or her family members.

Start proactively managing symptoms of Huntington’s Disease by creating a healthcare team to help in the decision-making process. Ideally, this team would include:

  • Ancillary professionals (such as a speech therapist, occupational therapist, or physical therapist).

  • Neurologist with experience with movement disorders.

  • Primary care physician.

  • Psychiatrist, neuropsychiatrist, or geriatric psychiatrist.

  • Mental health therapist.
