World’s fattest woman loses 65 kilos after treatment in UAE

DUBAI, July 24 (Xinhua) — The Burjeel Hospital Abu Dhabi said Monday the world’s “fattest” woman (at weight of 500 kilos) from Egypt managed to lose 65 kilos since she was treated in the hospital, the UAE state news agency WAM reported.

The hospital said the world’s most obese woman Iman Abd al-Ati from Egypt has been “gradually recovered” and managed to lose 65 kilos since she entered the hospital as an inbound patient.

The hospital added during the eighty days of treatment, the Egyptian woman is able now to sit in a wheelchair and to move her arms.

Iman who is 36 years old, arrived at the Bureej hospital in Abu Dhabi on May 4 to complete her treatment trip which was started in Mumbai, India.

Before the operation Abd al-Ati was bedbound and her weight stood at 500 kilograms, according to media reports.

She suffered from “a disruption of the glands and elephantiasis disease” causing huge amounts of water to be retained in the body, according to a report by Dubai-based news channel Al Arabiya.
