-World’s heaviest woman dies at the age of 37.
-She had been undergoing treatment on weight loss before her death.
An Egyptian woman, Ms Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, believed to be the world’s heaviest woman at a time, has died in the United Arab Emirates after complications arising from heart and kidney malfunction.
El Aty had travelled to India earlier this year for bariatric weight loss surgery and she had reportedly shed more than half of her original 500kg weight before she died from health related complications.
A hospital statement said the 37-year-old had heart disease and kidney dysfunction.

“Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to her family,” said the hospital.
Ms Abd El Aty had been in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi since May after being transferred following specialist surgery in Mumbai, India.
Before the surgery, her family claims she had not left her house for 25 years.
After an online campaign by her sister, she was able to travel to Mumbai on a chartered plane for help from an Indian surgeon.
However, she was transferred again after her family fell out publicly with the Mumbai medical team. The family had cast doubt on its claims about her weight loss.
El Aty celebrated her birthday last month with her family and doctors by her side.
