World's heaviest woman, who suffered from rare thyroid condition, dies aged 37

Eman Ahmed

The 37-year-old Egyptian national had been receiving treatment for her obesity, kidney and heart ailments at Abu Dhabi's Burjeel Hospital where she passed away at around 4.35 am (local time) on Monday morning.

The world's heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed from Egyptian, weighing roughly 500 kilogrammes arrives in Mumbai.

Hospital officials said that numerous co-morbid conditions including heart diseases and kidney dysfunction resulted in her death. In July end, doctors at the Burjeel Hospital had shared videos and pictures with the former world's heaviest woman, where Eman was seen smiling and talking to her family.

Eman underwent bariatric surgery in March in which doctors reduced the size of her stomach by two-thirds, so as to reduce her food intake.

She died just a week after celebrating her 37th birthday. At that time her weight was 176.6 kg.

Ahmed left Mumbai on May 4 after spending three months at the city's Saifee Hospital, where she underwent weight loss surgery.

'Narcos' location scout found riddled with bullets in Mexico
Carlos Muñoz Portal was scouting locations for season four of the popular Netflix series when he was shot to death. The area of the country in which his corpse was found is considered to have one of world's highest murder rates.

"There were a lot of possibilities of things going wrong but we are in the healthcare field and if we don't come forward to take such risks, who is going to help these people?" he asked in May. However, a spat between Ahmed's doctors and family ended her therapy at the hospital.

Abdul Atti's sister, Shaimaa Selim, was her fiercest champion, raising money and reaching out to doctors until she found Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala in Mumbai, who offered to treat Abdul Atti pro bono.

Confined to her bed for twenty-five years, Ahmed could not receive the necessary medical aid for her condition in her home country. But, he thought, "if I can somehow use whatever God-gifted talent I have to save her, I must try".

And then there was the herculean task of moving Abd El Aty from her home in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria - which she hadn't left in almost 25 years - to the hospital in Mumbai, where Lakdawala would perform the bariatric procedure.

They were also grateful to the rulers and residents of the UAE for their support to Eman during the treatment.
