Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Huntington's Disease
Huntington's Disease
HD symptoms in the beginning may be slight clumsiness or restlessness. Soon, muscles in the face and hands start to move involuntarily. In the later stages, this could include the whole body.
Cure
There is no known cure for Huntington's Disease. There are symptoms that could be managed by going to therapy, or taking prescription drugs.
Current Research
Physicians are trying to find out how widespread it is. Researchers are making tests to find out which patients have this disease, because the symptoms could be caused by other mental illnesses.
Epidemiology
Introduction
Huntington's disease is caused hereditary genes, meaning that if your parents had that disease. there is a 50% chance that you will get it too. Huntington's disease causes involuntary movements, and people who have been diagnosed with HD will live for only 15 more years.
Studies show that there is 1 person who is diagnosed with HD for every 10,000 people.
