In brief: Not much

Huntingdon's disease is a progressive disease, and lifestyle choices do little to affect prognosis.
The exception is to stop smoking.

In brief: Huntington's, right?

At present there is nothing that the patient or anyone else can do to slow the inexorable failure of the brain in huntington's.
The best is to try to stay as cheerful and physically fit as possible, and hopefully be surrounded by good caregivers. You have my sympathy.
