Huntington's disease is an inherited disorder that causes degeneration of brain cells in the motor control regions of the brain, as well as other areas. Symptoms of the disease, which become progressively worse, include uncontrolled movements, abnormal body postures, and changes in behavior, emotion, judgment, and cognition. Huntington’s disease also causes impaired coordination, slurred speech, and difficulty feeding and swallowing. Symptoms typically begin between the ages of 30 and 50. A juvenile form occurs under age 20. More than 30,000 Americans have Huntington’s disease.
