World's heaviest woman Eman Ahmed loses over 140 kg since arriving in India
 
(Mumbai, march,18,2017): The world's heaviest woman Eman Ahmed, who is being treated at Mumbai's Saifee Hospital, has lost over 140 kg since her arrival in India for weight reduction treatment.

The Egyptian national is being treated by a team led by Dr Mufazzal Lakdawala at the hospital where she underwent a weight loss surgery earlier this month.

"Eman's current weight is 358 kg," the hospital said in a statement on Saturday.

When Ahmed arrived in Mumbai on February 11, 2017 for a weightreduction surgery by a specially modified aircraft, she weighed 500 kg.

She is currently on "two hourly liquid feeding regime" where she is given lowsodium protein powder mixed with soy milk. Daily, she receives about 1,800 calories, the statement said.

"Her levels of uric acid remain a challenge," it added.

Eman still receives her feed through a tube because of the difficulty in swallowing fluids due to a stroke she had suffered earlier, doctors said.
