Eman Ahmed, once world's heaviest woman, dies after multiple organ failure

Eman Ahmed, once world's heaviest woman, dies after multiple organ failure

Eman Ahmed Abdul Atti, who was once considered the world's heaviest woman, weighing more than 1,000 pounds, died at 37 from complications due to heart disease and kidney dysfunction on Monday.

Ahmed was a citizen of Alexandria, Egypt and was in India earlier this year, where she underwent a weight-loss surgery at Mumbai's Saifee Hospital. Over time she eventually came down to 176 kgs.

Eman Ahmed reached the massive weight after being born with a condition that left her constantly hungry.

Afterwards, she successfully underwent a gastric sleeve surgery and was reported in April to have lost 660 lbs - more than half of her bodyweight before her death. After her long and successful treatment in Mumbai, since February 11, she was then treated at Abu Dhabi's VPS Healthcare.

Following the surgery, Atti's family fell out with doctors in Mumbai and requested she be transferred to the United Arab Emirates and Abu Dhabi's Burjeel hospital.

A team of 20 specialists were assigned to her care, and further operations were planned for later in the year. Also, the doctor's aim is to lose her excess weight and reduce the weight to a minimum of 100 kg.

Ms Ahmed refrained from going out of her house for over two decades because of her weight and a stroke left her paralysed a year ago. However, her stay in the hospital ended after three months after her sister Shaimaa Selim raised allegations against the doctors who were treating Eman. She was admitted at the hospital on May 4 after arriving in the UAE from India.

She said inquiries at local hospitals by her family went unanswered, but after her sister Chaymaa went public with the problem, they finally offered help.
