This post was originally published on this site The identification of the Huntington’s disease (HD) gene in 1993 opened doors for new scientific exploration. My genetic testing experience For most of my adult years, I believed I was not at risk for Huntington’s disease. After meeting with a geneticist and a genetics counselor, we agreed that I should have an HD test to rule it out. I regret agreeing to it now that I’m more knowledgable about the process, the disease, and the emotional reaction I experienced to my positive result. What I learned that may help you I learned a few things from the Huntington’s disease genetic testing experience. Everyone needs support through the process, even if the result is negative. I have two sisters, both of whom underwent Huntington’s disease genetic testing. My sister with the normal test result expressed great feelings of guilt because she was the only one of the three of us to test negative. Finally, the shock of my HD test result took a toll on my family. The post Tips from My Huntington’s Disease Genetic Testing Experience appeared first on Huntington’s Disease News.
