UAE: Egyptian Eman Ahmed, dubbed the world’s heaviest woman, died on Monday at an Abu Dhabi hospital, merely a week after she turned 37. Ahmed was in Mumbai earlier in 2017 and underwent a weight-loss surgery.
She spent three months in the Saifee Hospital during which time she lost nearly 250 kilograms.
Abu Dhabi’s Burjeel Hospital, where she was being treated after her release from Saifee Hospital, Mumbai, said she had died of co-morbid conditions including heart disease and kidney dysfunction.
The hospital said: “She had been under the supervision of a medical team of over 20 doctors from different specialties who were managing her medical condition from the time she arrived in the UAE. Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family.”
Ahmed, from Alexandria in Egypt, came to India in February and underwent a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery performed by a team of doctors led by Muffazal Lakdawala.
Previously, doctors had shared videos of her recovery, claiming that she was healing faster than they had planned.
