Today is International N24 Awareness Day, where we are spreading awareness for N24, also known as 24-hour sleep wake disorder, or Hypernychthemera Disorder, which affects over 50 per cent of totally blind people, and a small percentage of sighted people.
N24 is caused by the dis-regulation of the day-night cycle “nature clock” to synchronise with the “brain clock” sleep-wake cycle, which can lead to chronic sleep deprivation accumulating, excessive daytime sleepiness, issues concentration, and memory.
There is no cure to N24, however there are treatments and medicine available which includes, melatonin, light therapy, hormones.
