Who should have huntingtons disease testing done?

A very, VERY personal decision. A person that has a parent that has Huntingtons, and is now an adult, might decide to be tested for HD prior to having children, or to help plan what they want to do in life. At present, there is no cure and limited treatment for Huntingtons. Some people may not WANT to know that they have a disease that is ultimately fatal, and has no cure. My wife has HD, and we have 4 adult children. Three of them decided to be tested- one decided not to.
