World's heaviest woman Eman Ahmed passes away in Abu Dhabi'

New Delhi, Sep 25: World's heaviest woman Eman Ahmed, who underwent weight loss treatment in Mumbai as well, passes away in Abu Dhabi's Burjeel Hospital. She had made quite a feat by reducing her weight from 500 kgs to 170 kgs.

 Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty (36), was the heaviest living women in the world and the second heaviest woman (500kgs) in history. From 500 she had reduced to 170 kgs, thanks to the Indian doctor Dr Muffazal Lakdawala.

After this historic victory, Eman flew back to Abu Dhabi. A 29-sheet transfer file will be handed over to Bhurjeel hospital in Abu Dhabi.

At a press conference held at Saifee Hospital on Wednesday, the medical team had said it had "forgiven" Eman's sister Shaimaa Semil for making bitter allegations against them

Dr Lakdawala who had been treating upon Eman.

This Egyptian national was brought to India in February this year and the target set for Lakdawala and his team of doctors was near impossible. But the medical team took the challenge little knowing what would be the final outcome. But the result within two months was amazing. Eman weighed half her original weight. Dr Lakdawala had said then: "Risk in this case was 99%, had only 1% chance of success. She has done miraculously well, didn't expect this." The weight reduction surgery was successful and the entire medical team was elated about this.

Sister Shaimaa Selim took the initiative

. All this was possible because of the initiatives taken by Eman's sister Shaimaa Selim. Selim is married and has children. Besides her home and professional life, she had to take care of Eman and she was worried once things started going out of control. The weight was increasing gradually and the bed-ridden Eman was having great problems. She then learned about Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who is an expert in weight loss surgery. After seeing her reports and going through her history he was ready to take up the challenge, though unsure about the final outcome.

It was near impossible to transport her to India

Transporting Eman was a very big challenge and the walls of her room were razed to bring her out with the help of a crane. A special truck and cargo flight were arranged. All the expenses were met from the funds raised through charity. The family is very happy to see the results but they still have a long way to go. Doctors have taken one year to bring her to the minimum acceptable weight.
