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

Abdel Ati, who was receiving treatment at Abu Dhabi's Burjeel Hospital, died "due to complications related to her comorbid condition, including heart disease and kidney dysfunction", according to the hospital.

She weighed 504kg when she was admitted to the hospital, but had apparently lost over 250kg after extensive surgery.

At the Burjeel Hospital, a team of around 20 healthcare professionals were treating her as per a treatment plan divided into three stages.

Ms Ahmed had a rare thyroid condition which drastically affected her metabolism, with a series of knock-on effects on her heart, kidneys and respiratory system. El Aty, in her mid-30s, first sought treatment in India, travelling from the port city of Alexandria to Mumbai aboard a specially modified Airbus in early February.

Taking on wireless charging would put Xiaomi on-par with Android rivals like Samsung and LG which have featured it for years . Nearly all major global smartphone makers including Nokia, Google, Samsung, LG and Apple are part of this consortium.

However, what started out as a ray of hope for Eman, soon turned into a spat between her family and her doctors at Saifee Hospital over her progress. According to her family, Abdel Aaty had completed 25 years without leaving her home prior to traveling to India as she weighed 500kg. "We will definitely help her", Swaraj had tweeted in response to the request. But her sister Shaimaa Selim released a video which stated that Ahmed was not doing so well.

Dr. Mufazzal Lakdawala, who headed the team of doctors that treated her for obesity at Saifee Hospital, was unavailable for comment but expressed his condolences on Twitter. That forced her to remain in a bed for years, and her lack of movement caused her weight to skyrocket. Eventually, a doctor in Mumbai took on her case, for free, and managed to fly her in a modified plane that could take her weight.

Eman Ahmed had been in Abu Dhabi since May.

She was initially brought to India for bariatric procedure under Mumbai-based Saifee Hospital.
