World's heaviest woman, Eman Ahmed, dies in Abu Dhabi

After having the treatment in Mumbai, she almost loses 300 kg of weight.

In Burjeel, Eman suffered from kidney dysfunction and heart disease that worsened her condition in the last few days. She succumbed to death just weeks after her 37th birthday. On May 4, Eman was flown out of Mumbai to Abu Dhabi. The case of Eman Ahmed's weight loss transformation was a breakthrough for the doctors at Saifee hospital.

Doctors believe her condition is caused by a fluid retention problem, meaning that large amounts of extra water are being retained in her body.

A resident of Alexandria in Egypt, she had not stepped out of her house for more than two decades due to her obese condition followed by a stroke that left her paralysed on one side a year ago.

A team of 20 specialists were assigned to her care, and further operations were planned for later in the year.

Her sister started a campaign online to help raise awareness about her plight. "We would have definitely lost her without operating as she was very sick". Doctors also diagnosed Abd El Aty with severe depression and began focusing on her mental health - while her family clamped down on interviews.

Abd El Aty's family said that prior to her leaving for treatment in Mumbai in February, she hadn't left her home in 25 years, and that her extreme weight had forced her to crawl instead of walk by age 11. However, the news of her sudden death has saddened people all over the world who were inspired by Eman's journey and her recovery.

The doctors in Mumbai were able to help her lose almost 700 pounds through bariatric weight loss surgery before she was flown to Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi for further rehabilitation.

In Feb 2017, Eman Ahmed travelled to Mumbai where a group of doctors treated her successfully using bariatric surgery.
