Formerly known as the heaviest Female in the world، Egyptian national Eman Ahmed، Eman Ahmed’s physical and mental health had shown massive improvement، according to Dr Yasin El-Shahat، Chief Medical Officer، Burjeel Hospital.

Moreover، he pointed out that currently، she is able to sit up in bed and in the specialized wheelchair for long periods.
Earlier this year، Eman was lifted by a crane and brought in a cargo carrier from Egypt to India to undergo obesity management at Saifee Hospital. She was estimated to weigh near 500 kgs. She underwent a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery and Saifee Hospital claimed that she had lost 300 kg.
However، Eman was still unable to talk، and stayed bed-ridden.
The doctors at the Abu Dhabi hospital say Eman needed a multi-disciplinary approach.
Dr Shamsheer Vayalil، chairman and managing director، VPS Healthcare told DNA that they don't discuss two things with Eman--her weight and the cost of her medical care. "We want to give her a near normal life and respecting patient privacy will be our focus،" he added.
