Former World's Heaviest Woman Eman Ahmed Dies In Abu Dhabi Due To'Health Complications

Doctors at Abu Dhabi's Brujeel hospital said that multiple co-morbid complications including heart disease and kidney dysfunction led to her death. Doctors at the Burjeel Hospital had previously shared pictures and videos of improvement in Eman's health conditions and said that she was making a positive recovery. She has undergone a weight loss surgery in Mumbai earlier this year.

"I want to thank Abu Dhabi, VPS Healthcare Group and Dr Shamsheer (Vayalil) for everything he did". She was undergoing treatment at the Saifee Hospital in Mumbai where she underwent treatment for severe obesity. "If a patient's treatment is over, we can't unnecessarily keep her in hospital", said Huzaifa Sahebi, the COO of Saifee Hospital which treated her free of cost. The case of Eman Ahmed's weight loss transformation was a breakthrough for the doctors at Saifee hospital. "She has already suffered a stroke resulting in paralysis of her right arm and leg, she can not speak, has type 2 diabetes, hypertension, has severe obstructive and restrictive lung disease, gout and is at a very high risk of pulmonary embolism".

She was abruptly shifted to UAE after her sister Shaimaa alleged that she was not receiving proper treatment at the city hospital.

PGA Tour Championship: Justin Thomas' eagle nets 3-way tie at top
Jordan Spieth and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson are four shots off the lead at three-under 137. McCarron had seven birdies and an eagle to finish his round just ahead of Bernhard Langer.

She weighed 504kg when she was admitted to the hospital, but had apparently lost over 250kg after extensive surgery. Doctors managed to move her after a wall was brought down to bring her out. She had celebrated her birthday on September 9. Egypt Air specially adapted a cargo plane to transport her to India.

The woman who was formerly the heaviest woman in the world has died in Abu Dhabi on Monday morning. "With surgery, we took a chance and so did her family".
