Widely believed to be ‘world’s heaviest woman’, a 37-yr-old Egyptian national Eman Abdul Atti died on Monday in a hospital in the UAE due to complications from her weight, including heart disease and kidney dysfunction.
Eman died at the Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi due to complications from the underlying comorbid conditions, including heart disease and kidney dysfunction, according to medical experts at the hospital. Eman had been admitted at Burjeel hospital on May 4 after arriving in the UAE from India. She had been under the supervision of over 20 doctors from different specialities, who were managing her medical condition.
Eman underwent bariatric surgery in March in India in which doctors reduced the size of her stomach by two-thirds, so as to reduce her food intake. Her genetic tests had showed that she had a rare gene mutation that cannot be cured through surgery.
