Eman Ahmed 37 with Dr Shamsheer Vayalil during her birthday celebrations at Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi

The Hindustan Times report quoted officers from the Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi as saying that several co-morbidities including heart ailments and kidney dysfunction led to her death.

A team of more than 20 doctors had been caring for Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty since her arrival at Burjeel Hospital in May.

An Egyptian woman who was dubbed world's heaviest woman has passed away at a hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates aged 37.

Last year, Ms Atti said she hadn't left home for 25 years because of her size.

Ms Ahmed refrained from going out of her house for over two decades because of her weight and a stroke left her paralysed a year ago.

In February, Eman was safely transported from Egypt to India for a weight reduction surgery.

It is unclear whether Abd El Aty was undergoing a surgical procedure at the time of her death. She was later shifted back to Abu Dhabi in May due to differences between her sister and the hospital management. In July end, doctors at the Burjeel Hospital had shared videos and pictures with the former world's heaviest woman, where Eman was seen smiling and talking to her family.

Her family, however, have appreciated the efforts put on by the Burjeel Hospital staff in helping her lose weight.

Dr. Mufazzal Lakdawala, who headed the team of doctors that treated her for obesity at Saifee Hospital, was unavailable for comment but expressed his condolences on Twitter. Her family told the doctor that as a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile.

Her sister started a campaign online to help raise awareness about her plight.
