World's former heaviest woman Eman Ahmed dies in Abu Dhabi after multiple organ failure
Abu Dhabi : Eman Ahmed, an Egyptian national, who was once world’s heaviest woman, passed away in Abu Dhabi hospital due to multiple organ failure.
She was undergoing weight loss treatment in Abu Dhabi’s Burjeel hospital. According to an official spokesperson, she had shown improvement in emotional and psychological growth parameters.
Eman took her last breath at around 4:35 am on Monday due to complications from the underlying co-morbid conditions. In last few days, she suffered from kidney dysfunction and heart disease which kept decreasing at a continuous rate.
“She had been under supervision of 20 doctors from different specialties,” a hospital official said.
“She suffered a septic shock that led to severe infection in her body. Yesterday (Sunday) we shifted her to intensive care unit. Her condition worsened in 24 hours and she suffered a multi organ failure,” Dr Nahed Halawa, deputy medical director at Burjeel hospital, told the Indian Express.
He added, “We are all in shock. This is so sudden. Eman Ahmed’s sister Shaimaa Selim is coming to terms with the loss. The family is yet to reach Abu Dhabi from Egypt.”
Last month, Eman Ahmed had celebrated her birthday at hospital with her family and doctors.
