Reports say that the 17-year-old teen is suffering from a rare sleep disorder called Kleine-Levine, or ‘Sleeping Beauty Syndrome.’
Delien‘s condition wakes her up in a confused state for a short period for her to be able to eat, went to the bathroom and sleep again.
According to Delien‘s mother, Vicki, the real-life sleeping beauty usually sleeps about 18 to 19 hours a day. Delien’s mother wakes her up to eat.
The Delien Family revealed and explained the “sleeping beauty syndrome” during an interview with Jeff Probst’s syndicated talk show this week to make sure other families become aware of the rare disorder.
The real condition of Delien was uncovered by a doctor at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
An Oxford Journals indicated that symptoms leading to the “sleeping beauty syndrome” include excessive sleeping, disorientation, hallucination, child-like behaviour, binge-eating and periods of hyper-sexuality when awake.
