World's heaviest woman loses 140 Kg since arrival in India

World's heaviest woman loses 140 Kg since arrival in India

While Eman's treatment with diuretics and protein therapy continues to help her lose weight, the rate of weight loss is expected to be slow now.

Having lost almost 140 kilos after undergoing bariatric surgery in Mumbai's Saifee Hospital, Eman is on the way to a steady, albeit slow recovery. "The initial weight loss allowed us to operate safely and successfully".

Eman is on a two-hourly liquid feeding regime that begins at 6 am and ends at midnight.

She is now on "two hourly liquid feeding regime" where she is given low-sodium protein powder mixed with soy milk. "We don't want to risk her health after all this hard work", said bariatric surgeon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who is treating her at Saifee Hospital. She has done extremely well post surgery but continues to remain on tube feeds because of a difficulty in swallowing fluids. Nearly every organ seems to have suffered due to her morbidly obese frame that spanned five feet when she first flew into India: The multiple seizures reveal a neurological or brain-related problem; the fluid accumulation in her chest shows how much her chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) has affected her lung's function; the right side of her heart fails to function normally as is the case with many patients with COPD; and protein still leaks into her urine indicating overworked kidneys. To ensure she gets adequate calories, 45 ml of MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil is mixed in her food. "Her total caloric intake daily is approximately 1800 cal while her total protein intake daily is approximately 200 gms", said Dr Remedies. "The results of the genetic tests are still expected from the U.S.", said Dr Lakdawala. Once she starts breathing constantly on her own then it will be safe to send her back.
