Corea di Huntington


LIRH Foundation participates in World Rare Disease Day 2021. The voices of patients and caregivers will take on color through their testimonies: 

  • what does it mean to have a rare disease?
  • what does it mean to have Huntington's disease?
  • if you were the minister of health, what would you do?

The protagonists will answer these questions. Starting from today, February 22, until Sunday, February 28, World Rare Disease Day.

What do I need to do to undergo the genetic testing?

Hello. What do I have to do to take the test for Huntington’s Chorea? Do I need to book it or can I just show up at your center? Are there any special precautions before the test? For example, should I go on an empty stomach?
Thank you.
