Genes code for proteins.
If its a genetic disease then a gene is probably damaged that would otherwise code for a protein, although it is less probable that a mutation could cause an excess of a protein.
Any knowledge about which protein is deficient or excessive would be useful.
Bruce Ames long ago wrote that vitamins (mostly enzymes and co-enzymes) in large amounts can be used to overcome various so-called "genetic" diseases Lets see if I can find... an article I wrote in 2005..

And then there areVitamin Therapies May Help Treat 50 Genetic Diseaseshttp://jackchallem.com/pages/feedgenes/50GeneticDiseasesArticle.pdfhttp://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2002/04/04_vitam1.html
In a review article in the April issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, UC Berkeley's Bruce N. Ames lists more than 50 genetic diseases successfully treated with high doses of vitamins, most of them rare inborn metabolic diseases due to defective enzymes.
Ames found a common thread in the effectiveness of these megavitamin therapies that suggests there may be many more diseases treatable with high-dose vitamins, in particular the eight B vitamins like niacin, thiamine and pyridoxine. And because aging involves similar biochemical deficiencies, megavitamins may help perk up an increasingly older population.
