New Delhi, Sept 25: The Egyptian woman, who lost around 300 kg during a surgery in Mumbai earlier this year, passed away in an Abu Dhabi hospital early morning, just a week after celebrating her 37th birthday.
According to the officials of the Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi numerous co-morbid conditions including heart diseases and kidney dysfunction resulted in Eman’s death.“She had been under the supervision of a medical team of over 20 doctors from different specialities who were managing her medical condition from the time she arrived in the UAE. Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family,” said the hospital.
Ahmed, a resident of Alexandria, Egypt, was brought to Mumbai’s Saifee Hospital for weight-loss treatment and transferred to Burjeel Hospital on May 4 after spending three months in Mumbai.
The 37-year-old weighed 504kg when she arrived in Mumbai on February 11 and considered the world’s heaviest woman. Doctors at Saifee said the bariatric surgery and diet regime they gave Ahmed helped her lose 300kg.
Previously, doctors had posted videos of her recovery, claiming that she was healing three times faster than they had planned.
Dr. Yassin El Shahat, chief medical officer of Abu Dhabi based Burjeel Hospital had said that by the end of stage two of her treatment, Eman will feed herself by mouth and use an electric wheel chair after achieving a reasonable weight loss by strict diet regimen.
