Doctors at Abu Dhabi's Brujeel hospital said that multiple co-morbid complications including heart disease and kidney dysfunction led to her death. This is what the statement said and added that she was kept under the supervision of 20 doctors with different medical specializations. El Aty celebrated her birthday last month with her family and doctors by her side.

At the Dubai hospital, she was to reduce her weight by over 220 pounds in order to fit onto the operating table.

Ms Ahmed had not stepped out of her house for more than two decades due to her weight and a stroke that left her paralysed a year ago. El Aty, in her mid-30s, first sought treatment in India, travelling from the port city of Alexandria to Mumbai aboard a specially modified Airbus in early February.

"She is very happy, she started dancing in her bed", Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala, the surgeon who performed her laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy operation, told CNN in March.

But her sister Shalimaa disputed the size of the weight loss in a video she broadcast on YouTube. It's unclear if she was in surgery at the time of her death.

On May 4, Eman was flown out of Mumbai to Abu Dhabi.

Ahmed was transferred to the Abu Dhabi hospital after an ugly spat broke out between her sister, Shaimaa Selim - who wanted her recovery to be speedy, and the Saifee doctors.

She was later taken to the UAE hospital for surgery. "The surgery itself was the biggest risk to her, besides other issues that come with extreme obesity". She left on April 5 this year for the United Arab Emirates for long-term treatment.

Eman's family said Eman had weighed 11 pounds (5 kg) at birth and suffered from thyroid problems since she was a child.

The hospital sent its condolences to her family.
