    I've had the pleasure (or displeasure) of experiencing health care in other countries, first hand. USA has the highest prices, but that does not mean better. Australia was the most like American health care, but about 10 % of the cost. Prague (Czech Republic) and southern Wales (UK) seemed like some sort of time warp back to the early 1970's. Doctors in southern Wales were baffled because I knew my blood pressure and blood sugar numbers, and they were surprised that I continually asked for updates on my stats and condition. They also seemed taken aback because I knew what was medically wrong with me and how to fix my medical issue. A doctor in south Wales (UK) referred to a staph infection drug I asked for as 'voodoo medicine', when in fact, the drug has been used for 40 years, is on the World Health Organizations list of Essential Medicines, and costs less than $10.

    You payed $80k for an appendix removal? It would been cheaper to fly to Europe and have it done there for € 2800 or has the $ devalued so much since Trump?

    All the people that say they have to be gluten free...you dont know what that's really like. 80 percent are just diet fad people. 20 percent actually cannot tolerate gluten. Even some nausea medications have gluten meaning if you dont get affected by taking something like zofran you a lieing ass bitch

    Trevor, food allergies are a Real Thing. Every time someone serves me cauliflower I feel like puking. When my parents forced me as a kid to eat it I *did* puke. Now if that doesn't qualify as an allergy then I don't know what does...

    Man. Wouldn't it be nice to have hypochondria as your only illness? I wish I had hypochondria and that all my illnesses were fake. I wish my bipolar disorder was made up in my head. I wish I didn't have a bum ass thyroid from Hashimoto's at 23 years old, since I was 17. I wish my eating disorder was all in my head. Imagine having the luxury of making something up to feel special. The illnesses that make me special are things that absolutely destroy my life and I get treated as a psycho outcast not someone who needs to order gluten-free bread out of restaurant.

    I have an intolerance to garlic. If I eat it, I get nosebleeds, vomiting, headaches, and malaise. If I say I have an intolerance to garlic, people think "oh a little bit won't hurt" and they put garlic in my food and I get nosebleeds, vomiting, headaches, and malaise. If I say I'm allergic to garlic, people don't put garlic in my food, I enjoy my food, and my week isn't wrecked by some condescending doucheparade who thinks they know more about what I can and can't eat than I do. Control for people with food intolerances that they are forced to call allergies so they can eat safely and run those numbers again, it'll be a very different picture.

    Trevor said that he had an appendectomy (appendix removal), but he pointed to the left side of his body, no the right one (pun intended). I am from the Southern Hemisphere, too, and I can attest that our appendices are on the right side of our bodies. And the big question is: did he really have the surgery, or he had some other kind of surgery? However, if he had his appendix removed but the surgeon entered on the left side, that might explain the expensive bill he received. I am just saying...

    I have a shellfish "allergy", an onion "intolerance" and a caffine "sensitivity". Different things, but I just say I'm allergic to all 3 because they are all unpleasant and it saves the time needed to try explaining the difference. I do however, label them correctly for any medical personnel that treat me.

    My motorcycle accident cost me as much as a house. As soon as the sent me home they called threatened to take my home and two cars. My auto insurance and medical were fighting for who to pay. Glad that was straightened out. Sad part is my body was broken everywhere and they didn't even let me recover first.

  • The Paleo One Project
    The Paleo One Project 3 months ago

    Yeah, If you only test on the IgE, then you only see the reaction on THAT blood marker. However, you CAN react to things that don't show up on that test. You just aren't going to die. So, you technically can't call it an allergy, but you can call it an intolerance. This is not a new concept, and it didn't start because of a fad.

  • Gary Cooper
    Gary Cooper 3 months ago

    Gluten intolerance is real, but it’s rare. If a real doctor, with a medical license and everything, diagnoses you, then you have it. If not, you’re just following a fad. If you think you’re allergic to gluten, but you can’t tell me what gluten is, you’re not.

    As someone who could actually die eating shellfish after my asthma and shellfish allergies co-developed in adulthood, I miss the HECK out of lobster and crab, so it agitates me a little when health-fad-nuts make things more difficult for those of us who have real allergies by making us all look like liars and assholes. Also, I’d eat the hell out of that crab if I could, so for Christ’s sake enjoy it on my behalf if you can (if you like it) and stop yer bitchin’.

    And I just keep thinking that here in Germany, thanks to universal healthcare, I paid a whopping 30€ (35$) for the removal of my appendix.
    And that was only because every day you spend at a hospital they charge you 10€, I'm guessing so that homeless people don't pretend they're sick just to sleep somewhere warm for free and occupy beds.

    My mental health meds are necessary. My condition is not from lifestyle so there’s nothing I can do about it. If I don’t get my meds I will cost a lot more from my symptoms going out of whack. I am unfortunately one of the lucky ones. Honestly the lion’s share of my financial means is because I chose not to have children. I can only imagine how heartbreaking it is for people who want to be parents and have to make this decision for $$ reasons.

  • BuffaloThat

    I recently started attending a funeral service school and the first rule we learned in ethics was that it's a law in NY to give prices over the phone to any one who calls and asks for prices even if they are not looking to make arrangements. Anyone who comes in we give them a paper with a list of prices (that we go over with them and/or that they take with them) of the funeral home expenses because not all homes charge the same prices so people do like to look around and we are required to tell anyone the prices at any time asked. Apparently Funeral Homes will get "secret shoppers" as well to make sure workers are adhering to the proper laws and conducts and the most common one is calling and asking for pricing. I wondered why hospitals didn't do the same.

    Omg what is this? Trevor, this is spreading very horrendous information. Okay actual people who know something, know but when you have a real allergy and you consume stuff that don't work for you, you actually die (anaphylactic shock). I died twice almost, only the hospital intensive care saved me. - Besides these food allergies where this came from for me, you also can have very serious allergies for animals, dust mites and more- and they have a incapacitating effect.

    Im also suspicious (but respectful) of folks and their allergies. Most have never been tested for anything. Once long ago I ate cooked crab, just crab. Later that evening broke out in horrible hives all over face and neck. Scared me off crab until weeks later news reported high mercury counts in that seasons crab. Been eating it ever since no problem.

  • Elder Lemon
    Elder Lemon 5 months ago

    gf sensitivities don't exist lol gluten allergies and celiac diseases do obviously. most people feel mildly like crap after eating bread is because of the commercial yeast. slowly leavened bread with long living yeast strains are what we should be eating (sourdough is amazing). because the body can't properly ferment shitty commercial yeast. it rises too quickly to keep up with consumer demand for wonder bread. buy local slowly leavened bread and watch how quick your 'allergies' stop.

    I am allergic to pecans and it kills me, not literally, but also maybe not yet? I think it's because I grew up poor and in the country. We ate them from the trees everywhere and overtime my body stopped wanting to be so destitute? Like Bish, you are 30 and not that poor now...stop.
    My Grandmomma made authentic Georgia pecan pie. Now I can't eat pecan pie at Christmas, but I think I just need an epi pen, her recipe and go to town.

    Well, if you don't have healthcare, then you probably won't go to the doctor to get checked for suspected allergies. You'll just "self-diagnose" to stay on the safe side. Had tomatoes yesterday? Threw up tonight? Probably allergic to tomatoes!
    Got stung by a bee? Arm swells up? Allergic to bees! (I remember one contestant in ANTM season 1 seriously making that claim. Apparently she didn't know what a bee allergy actually is.)

She ate at our house once and her fork was bent and "melted" looking, she also had weird blue eyes, like they were purple looking and her whites of her eyes were purplish white. Her and her mom had no furniture at their house and moved a lot. She only stayed for the summer and left suddenly. She used to freak us all out and make us laugh by spitting on things and they would turn black or sizzle, one time a piece of wood started to smoke. I think she was a fuckin alien or something.

And no, they have no special insurance, it's basic health care here. And yes, it's quality health care. And yes, you get to choose your own doctor and hospital.
    What the hell, America??
