A statement issued by the Burjee Hospital said that Eman "developed complications from the underlying comorbid conditions including heart disease and kidney dysfunction". "She had been under supervision of 20 doctors from different specialties", a hospital official said.

She underwent bariatric surgery - a stomach-shrinking bypass procedure - the following month, initially shedding 100 kg at Saifee Hospital. She was airlifted in a cargo plane from Alexandria to Mumbai on February 11 for her weight loss treatment at the hospital.

Her death comes few days after she celebrated her 37th birthday on September 9, surrounded by family and friends. "Inna-lillahi-wa-inna-ilayhi-raji-un. You shall always remain in my thoughts and prayers #EmanAhmed.Shall forever remember her smile RIP". She had suffered a stroke that left her paralysed on one side a year ago. Eman Ahmed's death comes as a shock to many, however, the young woman was suffering because of her weight-related ailments for a long time.

And then there was the herculean task of moving Abd El Aty from her home in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria - which she hadn't left in almost 25 years - to the hospital in Mumbai, where Lakdawala would perform the bariatric procedure.

Eman's family expressed their appreciation for the care and treatment provided to her by Burjeel hospital. As reported, her family was not happy with the ongoing assistance and treatment at the Mumbai hospital and thus decided her to transfer her to a hospital in Abu Dhabi. In an unfortunate argument, Eman Ahmed's sister Saimma Selim has allegedly said that Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who has been treating Eman, is not correct about his updates about Eman's health and recovery, adding that her sister has not recovered at all.

Eman Ahmed had been in Abu Dhabi since May.

Doctors believe her condition is caused by a fluid retention problem, meaning that large amounts of extra water are being retained in her body. I had seen that - special machines and very good doctors here but that's God (will) we can't do anything but pray for her. El Aty left Mumbai when her sister clashed with the hospital, disputing her progress and treatment.
