Q. I’m writing a paper for school and haven’t found this answer; How do you test for HD? I originally thought it was a blood test but need to know for sure.
A. Hey Darci,
Great question! Your original thought is right, it is a simple blood test that lets people know how many CAG repeats they have on the gene that can cause HD.
Good luck with your paper.
