Bad Hips in Diabetics and does our brain have a 'task manager'? Also the truth about cardiac insufficiency.

Frank Pio Russo - November 16, 2015.

There are so many diabetics that have a bad hip that I'm sure it's not just a coincidence! Just to mention a few there was Umberto Russo, also the famous British scientist Jack Cohen, and myself of course.

In myself, the condition of my hip has miraculously oscillated up and down in a way that reflected on how good my diabetic control has been! Years ago it was 'shot to bits' - so much so that a major hospital claimed I needed an operation very soon! I made some changes to my diabetes and lo and behold, my hip dramatically improved on the next x-ray... so much so that it was unrecognizable! Then recently my control has again been 'slipping' and my hip was looking worse on a recent x-ray.

Naturally, in view of my recent article on diabetes, this sort of thing is to be expected because when one is controlling his diabetes with oral medications, he's virtually often on a starvation diet! I had also gone lame in the other foot: it was buckling under my body-weight and I needed some sort of ankle-foot-orthotic. Well after only being on insulin for a short time and being off my 'starvation diet', my foot has dramatically improved and my hip is no longer hurting! I bet that if I have another x-ray in a year's time it would show some remarkable - even miraculous improvements!

The scientific rationale for the foregoing, would be that the brain is able to control the distribution of blood and nutrients to the rest of the body according to its availability! In other words, what I am suggesting is that our brains possess a sort of control that would resemble the Microsoft 'task manager' that's in some of our personal computers. The latter is used to show all the applications that are 'running' so that the operator can switch one off if the usage of resources is too high! Well in my case the blood supply to the particular hip had virtually been switched off and I had received a diagnosis of "avascular necrosis" of unknown etiology.

It could be that the brain had decided that my resources were very finite and it would be better to keep me alive as a cripple rather than have me risk having a heart attack and dying! Perhaps this sort of risk assessment also happens in cardiac insufficiency, and that most diseases are thus simply a reflection of an ageing and compromised heart: basically things get switched off, i.e. the circulation is curtailed from various areas through the manipulation of blood vessel constriction: this could also explain why blood pressure tends to march upwards as we age - the heart is deteriorating!

Finally, whilst most of these complex 'calculations' are done by the autonomous nervous system, the conscious individual is not left completely out of the picture, with our eyes being a sort of rudimentary visual expression of our 'internal task manager', and the ability of those in the first world to carry out pathology tests to determine what's really going on.
