Egyptian Eman Ahmed, dubbed the world’s heaviest woman, died today at an Abu Dhabi hospital, merely a week after she turned 37.
Doctors described her death as being due to complications from her weight , including heart disease and kidney dysfunction.
The hospital said: “Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family.”
At one point, Ms Atti reportedly weighed around 78.5 stone (1,100lb/500kg). Doctors blamed her weight on a thyroid condition.
Ms Atti arrived in the UAE in May, receiving care from a team of 20 doctors at Burjeel Hospital.
She had earlier received medical treatment in India and underwent surgery which saw her lose some 47 stone (660lb/300kg).
