World's fattest woman is 300kgs lighter thanks to Indian hospital

Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, 36, has gotten the thumbs up from her doctors to finally go home after being laid up in a hospital bed since her gastric sleeve procedure, according to Dr. Oz The Good Life.

India attracts many medical tourists each year, with its hospitals offering quality care for significantly lower cost than in western countries.

Eman was shifted to an Abu Dhabi hospital on Thursday.

Eman Ahmed reportedly gained much of the weight at age 11, causing mobility difficulties that had her crawling instead of walking.

Sensex takes 267-pt hit, Nifty stumbles on oil worryline
Indian equity markets cheered the overnight Union Cabinet decisions with the NSE Nifty on Thursday closing at a record high level. Foreign portfolio investors have net sold shares worth Rs 2,600 crore since April 1.

Yesterday, Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, the lead surgeon handling Eman's treatment, told NDTV: "She was plethora of diseases".

Eman traveled to Mumbai for pro-bono surgery after a doctor responded to her sister's pleas for help on Twitter.

In her city, family doctors have diagnosed her as suffering from elephantiasis when she was young. On top of this, she has also suffered from a stroke, as well as from a whole host of ailments that have resulted from her weight problems.

With her weight now at 176.6kg, she will begin a year-long course of physiotherapy at VPS Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi, her doctors in Mumbai said. Based on reports of tests that studied 91 of her genes, doctors were planning to enroll her in a clinical trial in the USA on a drug that might help in her monogenic obesity.

Inmate crashes out of Iowa jail in stolen transport van
Back at the jail, Correa-Carmenaty struggled with the deputies and was able to get one of their handguns just before 11 a.m. One other inmate was in the van, but Danker said he didn't believe she was involved.

"There was a lot of chaos and controversy on Thursday and Sushma Swaraj had to intervene to sort the issue out", Sawant, who had earlier downplayed the chaos surrounding Eman's discharge from Saifee Hospital, said.

Dr Lakdawala and Saifee Hospital have denied Selim's allegations in statements to Asian News International (ANI), saying that Eman is doing well and that her sister "was creating a scene because she did not want to take her sister back to Egypt due to financial reasons".

The hospital also shared a video of Eman's arrival in Abu Dhabi.

Before her surgery, Ahmed had come to the Mumbai-based hospital in a cargo plane, but will now be able to travel on a passenger flight to her next appointment.

White House expects vote on healthcare bill this week
Fred Upton of MI , a former chairman of the House panel that oversees health care issues, said Tuesday he is against the measure. Vice President Mike Pence was at the Capitol Monday afternoon, meeting with members wavering on the bill, such as Yoder and Rep.

Medical experts at Mumbai's Saifee Hospital put her on a special liquid diet to get her weight down low enough for doctors to perform the operation. "She is smiling and waving to the doctors and bonding with the nurses", said a senior doctor. However, she should have some function and the hope is that she will be able to live a life that has a significant element of independence.
