Fans have been rooting for TLC star Tammy Slaton to achieve her weight loss goals since season 1 of 1000-lb Sisters. However, Tammy hasn’t always been the biggest advocate for her own health. Last year, she contracted the coronavirus (COVID-19) and had to be put on oxygen. Since then, Tammy has been going back and forth on oxygen and now fans are growing concerned.
Since then, Tammy Slaton has worn oxygen tubes occasionally. But recently, she posted a photo of herself smoking while using a breathing machine. Fans were immediately concerned. “Girl you know you ain’t supposed to be smoking,” one person commented. “Vaping with oxygen??” another person asked. “Totally don’t feel sorry for you.”
“As a future respiratory therapist, I am shocked that you’d be vaping or smoking at all while you’re on oxygen!” another fan wrote. “That is EXTREMELY dangerous! I am just concerned about you doll, not judging you, but as a healthcare professional, I had to say something. Please take care of yourself, you’re more than worth it honey.”
“Hoping and praying that you find a way to stop smoking while you are on oxygen, a lot of us are very worried about you!” one person added.
