Q. How do I stop worrying about JHD?

Anonymous

Ask a question

A. Hi, this is a tough question as I’m not sure what your situation is. Whether you are concerned about getting JHD or are you in a family that has JHD already? I’d really like to talk some more with you about your situation so feel free to email me at matt@hdyo.org

That said, JHD is quite rare even in HD families. 10% of those with HD have JHD so the chances of getting it are low even if you are at risk for HD. If you are in a family with JHD already then there may be more valid reasons to be worried about it. But I’d love to talk with you more about this.

Try not to worry for now.

Matt
