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

US might be great. Nearly every country has a better healthcare system than the US. Canada, the European countries. Maybe just adapt and change and get better.

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...

The thing is there is a difference between allergy and intolerance, and an intolerance is still very problematic

I was given a comprehensive allergy test that claimed I had none; but Pine Trees make me deathly ill. I have concluded these tests are not always conclusive or accurate.

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.

American's lifestyles are different to many countries, the Chinese have more allergies than us. We've been sold on processed food, GMOs, black box meds and fossil fuels that eat away at immunity and protective metabolic systems

Uh, Trevor, some people who are allergic to gluten have some pretty serious symptoms. I know people who could die if they even breath in a room with a baguette.

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.

loved that part about food allergies! My impression is the same, overacting, overreacting, dramatizing and overrating food allergies is very a brand in the states!
Some random youtube channel
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.

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.

Yes, some people say they are gluten intolerant when they are actually totally fine... And then there are those people like myself with Celiac disease. Definitely not faking that, I have blood panels to prove it. Gluten messes me up bad. I did not choose this!

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.

Jon Stewart's son nearly died from Celiac Disease and he's using the platform Jon built to try to convince people that it's all made up. Jon Stewart needs to come back and boot him off the show.
