Eman was treated by obesity expert, Dr Muffazal Lakdwala at Mumbai's Saifee hospital and lost nearly 300 kg during her stay in India.

A resident of Alexandria in Egypt, Eman was brought to Mumbai on February 11 this year to undergo a weight loss surgery.

Eman was admitted to the Burjeel hospital on May 4 after arriving in the UAE from India.

She was later taken to the UAE hospital for surgery. Eman Ahmed's sister Shaimaa Selim is coming to terms with the loss. Eman was undergoing treatment for obesity in Abu Dhabi for the past few months. She now weighs less than 204 kg.

Eman Ahmed reached the massive weight after being born with a condition that left her constantly hungry.

Prior to the operation she had not left her home in 25 years. Her request for an Indian visa was initially denied, but she was granted passage after tweeting a plea for help directly to India's foreign minister, who intervened. The hospital also expressed condolences for the deceased.

While earlier Ahmed had been completely bed-ridden, plagued by several illnesses and unable to eat independently, her health rallied and she was even able to sit up and converse properly.

Saifee Hospital was later accused of using her case as a publicity stunt to boost medical tourism in the country. "If he has any proof of her weight loss, show us the video of her weight before and after". Doctors at Saifee said the bariatric surgery and diet regime they gave Ahmed helped her lose 300kg.

Dr Lakdawala, who supervised her treatment at the Saifee hospital, said the hospital did not charge "a single penny" from Eman's family. Eman was an Egyptian. However, she died of complications from other health conditions.
