'World's heaviest woman' hospitalised in Abu Dhabi

Ahmed outside the hospital

She now weighs 389 pounds. Egyptian patient Eman Ahmed (36) has been admitted in the intensive care unit of Burjeel Hospital, Abu Dhabi, where a team of 20 specialists are assessing her medical parameters.

Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty had been previously considered the heaviest woman in the world, but thanks to an intervention from doctors in India, she managed to leave their hospital 325 kg lighter than her previous weight.

"I asked her personally how the journey was and she said she was very happy and it went very smooth", said Dr El Shahat.

Athletes told not to wear school clothing while protesting
Last year, some athletes echoed protesters from the community who were frustrated by the death of Alton Sterling. But the key difference here is that Walter Scott in SC - he was shot when he was running away from the officer.

UAE newspapers reported that Abd El Aty's sister Shaima had disagreed with how the Indian medical team were proceeding with the treatment.

The 37-year-old was discharged around 12.40 pm from the city-based Saifee hospital, where she was undergoing treatment for severe obesity since February this year.

A green corridor was created for transporting Eman from Saifee Hospital to Gate No. 5 of Terminal 2 at the airport. Sources at VPS healthcare that's taken Eman to Abu Dhabi now say that they would have preferred for her to be moved through the hospital on a mobile bed which would have been wheeled upto the ambulance parked outside that took her to the airport. "Which doctor would be out of his mind to seek publicity on the most hard case where the odds are so heavily loaded against you?" he said last night on NDTV, responding to criticism of Ms Ahmed's privacy being compromised.

Federal Bureau of Investigation chief says he had to tell Congress of Clinton email news
He also declined to say who was under investigation in the Russia-Trump associate investigation. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, right, and the committee's ranking member Sen.

Dr Lakdawala confirmed in a blog post that Eman has lost 51 stone (324kg), writing: "Her thyroid levels are controlled, her kidney and liver tests are as good as any of us, her lung functions and oxygen levels are normal without any need of external oxygen. Every treatment plan, method was debated with great detail", Lakdawala argued.

Refuting the allegations, Aparna Bhaskar, section chief of bariatric surgery at Saifee Hospital, had said that Shaimaa may be criticising the doctors to extend her sister's stay at the hospital. The latter had been approached by Ms. Selim after she fell out with Dr. Lakdawala, and it is where Ms. Ahmed will continue her treatment.

Ahead of her discharge from hospital which was delayed because of technical issues, Maharashtra health minister Dr Deepak Sawant also visited the patient and spoke to the doctors. From breaking down a wall in her house to have her lifted out of the room using a crane to chartering a special cargo plane fitted with medical equipment to fly her to Mumbai from her home in Alexandria, Egypt, for her treatment - none of this was without risk.
