The 'world's heaviest woman' has died in an Abu Dhabi hospital

They said Atti died at 4:35 a.m. on Monday due to complications from her weight, including heart disease and kidney dysfunction.

Widely known as the Egyptian woman, Eman Ahmed Abdelal was admitted in Saifee Hospital in Mumbai had undergone a successful weight reduction surgery on March 7 in India.

She had turned 37 a few weeks ago. Doctors had planned to treat Eman's acute issues - including her urinary tract infection, bedsores, rehabilitation, speech therapy - and provide her with psychological support within three months, as part of the first phase. She had supposedly not left her home for 25 years, and had been confined to the bed for year after suffering from a stroke.

For the past two decades, Eman has barely left her room, her family reported. The case of Eman Ahmed's weight loss transformation was a breakthrough for the doctors at Saifee hospital. She hailed from Egypt and weighed approximately 500 kg.

Eman Ahmed, who lived in Egypt, her weight started to grow at the age of 11. The Alexandria native had dreamed to one day visit the beach again, the Indian Express said quoting her sister. Her sister, Shaimaa Selim was involved in a dispute with the doctors who had even filed a police complaint against her for obstructing normal treatment of Eman.

Lakdawala said his priority was to save Eman and give her quality of life.

Ms Atti had been at the hospital since April when she arrived "bedridden" and was under the supervision of 20 medical experts. She then underwent a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery and the hospital authorities claimed that Eman had lost ample weight and was able to move her hands and speak.

The hospital sent its condolences to her family.
