Ahmed, who was originally from Egypt, weighed around 500 kg when she was first brought to Mumbai's Saifee Hospital to under weight loss surgery. This is what the statement said and added that she was kept under the supervision of 20 doctors with different medical specializations.

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

Sept 9: Eman celebrates her 37th birthday, surrounded by family and friends. "We have put her on conservative treatment with possible valve replacement as a part of the long-term plan", Yassin El-Shahat, chief medical officer of the hospital, had said in May.

She had since lost 140 kg before she was discharged from the city hospital for further treatment in the UAE in May.

Her sister Shaima had learnt about Mumbai-based bariatric surgeon Muffazal Lakdawala and his expertise in bariatric surgeries and approached him for help early this year.

In the aftermath of her death, Atti's family has expressed its gratitude to her health care providers in Abu Dhabi and thanked them for their support.

She was later diagnosed with the parasitic disease called Elephantiasis - which made her constantly hungry.

According to BBC, Abd El Aty had been in Abu Dhabi since May, following a specialist surgery in Mumbai, India.

After a seven-hour flight, she was transported to the hospital in a specially equipped truck accompanied by her sister, Shaimaa Ahmed, and a team of doctors.

Prior to the operation she had not left her home in 25 years. Abdul Atti went on to lose more than 600 pounds before her death in September. "If he has any proof of her weight loss, show us the video of her weight before and after".
