Circadian rhythms are physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a daily cycle. They help influence sleep and wake patterns and can be useful in identification of maladaptive sleep patterns that are known to exacerbate symptoms of rare disease. This research explored circadian rhythms and sleep in young males with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and age-matched unaffected males. Understanding circadian rhythms is pivotal for successful sleep intervention.
