AUTOIMMUNE/CHRONIC DISEASE 

The average time in the medical world that it takes to diagnose a chronic condition is from 3-5years from the onset of symptoms. It is Dr. Alden’s goal to reduce the time it takes to get a proper diagnosis so you can get on the right treatment plan for you.

Up to 10% of the population are affected by it with females being affected more than males.
