Poor Sleep Quality Is Associated with Dawn Phenomenon and Impaired Circadian Clock Gene Expression in Subjects with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Aims. We investigated whether poor sleep quality is associated with both dawn phenomenon and impaired circadian clock gene expression in subjects with diabetes. Methods. 81 subjects with diabetes on continuous glucose monitoring were divided into two groups according to the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. The magnitude of dawn phenomenon was quantified by its increment from...

QoS-aware scheduling with optimization of base-station power allocation in downlink cooperative OFDMA systems

We investigate the quality of service (QoS)-aware scheduling problem for downlink cooperative orthogonal frequency division multiple access systems. Our work mainly focuses on the optimization problem for joint base-station power allocation, relay selection and subcarrier assignment with QoS guarantees. We first demonstrate that by introducing the binary assignment variables, the...

Qos-aware resource allocation for mixed multicast and unicast traffic in OFDMA networks

This article focuses on the subchannel and power allocation for mixed multicast and unicast traffic in wireless OFDMA networks, where the multicast data is divided into basic layer and enhancement layer data. Our goal is to maximize the network total throughput with a total power constraint while guaranteeing the minimum rate requirements of both the unicast and muticast traffic...

Lipocalin-2, glucose metabolism and chronic low-grade systemic inflammation in Chinese people

Background Lipocalin-2 is a novel adipokine with connection to insulin resistance. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of serum lipocalin-2 with glucose metabolism and other metabolic phenotype in a large-scale Chinese population. Methods We evaluated serum lipocalin-2 in a cross-sectional sample of 2519 Chinese aged from 50 to 82 year in a Shanghai downtown...

Serum uric acid level and its association with metabolic syndrome and carotid atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes

Objective We aimed to investigate whether elevated serum uric acid concentrations are associated with higher risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and carotid atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods We conducted a population-based cross-sectional survey in Shanghai, with a total of 395 men and 631 women age 41 to 92 years. The carotid artery intima-media thickness...
