In brief: Too broad a question

There are all inherited disorders with the common issue of neurologic impairment, hd in adults, pku and ts in children.
The neurologic damage in pku can be prevented with diet, but there is no treatment for hd and ts. Tests are available to detect carrier status in all of these.
