Those who have been following the 1000-lb Sisters for a while now notice that Amy and Tammy Slaton’s foreheads differ. While both Tammy Slaton and her sister Amy Slaton struggle with obesity, Tammy has always had a bulge in her forehead that often fluctuates, while Amy never had one.
Many people have asked why Tammy’s forehead has such an unusual look. She doesn’t seem to be talking about it. Tammy’s lump on her forehead isn’t something new, but it often changes in size and this has led to many people asking questions about what could be causing it.
Tammy’s childhood photos show a similar bulge in her forehead as a teenager too. Tammy’s doctor told her that it has something to do with frequent weight gain. When Tammy went to the doctor and asked about her lump, she found out that it is actually a fat pocket.
The doctor told her that as she loses weight and then gains some back, the lump will fluctuate in size. So far, that seems to be true. Amy explained in the early episodes that her sister had a lot of fat on her body it came out of her forehead. When they both went to the doctor, they found out that Tammy’s body had run out of places in which it could store fat. So now the body stores it on her forehead. In the third season, Tammy’s forehead still has an evident lump. But many viewers have gotten used to it.
Tammy’s weight has caused not only the fat deposit in her forehead and subsequent lump but also other ailments. Tammy has been hooked up to oxygen, and she often refuses walks because it puts so much strain on her body when doing so. Despite being obese, Tammy has had to deal with many health issues. She once experienced a blood clot in her lungs and that later led to pneumonia. Despite her occasional attempts to lose weight, it is clear that the health issues are ongoing.
