World's heaviest woman, who suffered from rare thyroid condition, dies aged 37

However, after her sister accused the Saifee hospital of improper treatment, she was flown for further treatment to Abu Dhabi. She passed away at4:35 AMM on Sunday morning at Burjeel Hospital in UAE's Abu Dhabi.

For the past two decades, Eman has barely left her room, her family reported.

"The management of Burjeel Hospital is deeply saddened by the death of Eman Abdul Atti, the heaviest woman in the world".

She was under the supervision of the team of 20 doctors from different specialities who put her on a special liquid diet to reduce her weight enough for bariatric surgery.

While Eman had been doing extremely well and recovering from depression and mobility distress, doctors treating her said her death has come suddenly.

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.

Eman was overweight as a child, and is believed to have had a stroke at age 11 which left her bed-ridden for the rest of her life.

Her weight was more than 500 kgs and she suffered from a severe chronic problem since she was a child. The Alexandria native had dreamed to one day visit the beach again, the Indian Express said quoting her sister.

Following the surgery, Atti's family fell out with doctors in Mumbai and requested she be transferred to the United Arab Emirates and Abu Dhabi's Burjeel hospital. "We have not asked for a single penny from Eman's family". "We would have definitely lost her without operating as she was very sick". Selim alleged the doctors' claims of her weight loss were false. "She was infected with a very aggressive kind of bacteria", said Dr Neehad Khawala, head of intensive care unit at Burjeel Hospital.
