She breathed her last early in the morning. She also claimed that the doctors were using her for publicity. According to Dr Nabeel Debouni, the hospital's medical director, Eman had shown much improvement since her admission to Burjeel in May.
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.
She had been under the supervision of over 20 doctors from different specialities, said the report. "Everything was done for her. He did all that was possible with special machines and a good medical staff". Prior to the surgery, her family reported she weighed 1,102 pounds, said CNN.
However, Shaima, in an online video last month, had alleged that she was not receiving proper treatment at the privately-owned Saifee hospital in South Mumbai. She was later shifted back to Abu Dhabi in May due to differences between her sister and the hospital management. However, the news of her sudden death has saddened people all over the world who were inspired by Eman's journey and her recovery.
Doctors believed she had an issue with her thyroid, which is the hormone inside your body that helps regulate metabolism. The doctor said only after achieving some weight loss should the surgery option have been considered. Eman Ahmed's sister Shaimaa Selim is coming to terms with the loss. The surgery, performed by a medical team led by Dr Lakdawala took place on March 7 and within a month doctors at the Saifee hospital had claimed that she had lost almost 242 kg.
