Weight-loss surgery for 500kg woman

Posted on

An Egyptian woman, believed to be the world’s heaviest at 500kg (1,102lb), has undergone weight reduction surgery. Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is used as a last resort to treat people who are dangerously obese (having a body mass index of 40 or above or 35 plus other obesity-related health conditions). She weighed 5kg (11lb) at birth and was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition in which body parts swell due to a parasitic infection. By the time she was 11, her weight had risen sharply and she suffered a stroke which left her bedridden. She is cared for by her mother and sister.
