An Egyptian woman, believed to be the world's heaviest woman at kg 1,lbwill soon be flown to India for weight reduction surgery.
The Indian embassy in Cairo initially denied her visa request as she was unable to travel there in person. After the surgeon tweeted to India's foreign minister that changed.
India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who is herself in hospital awaiting a kidney transplant, was quick to respond with an offer of help. Ms Abd El Aty's family says she hasn't been able to leave home for 25 years now and claims she weighs kg. If the claim about her weight is true, then that would make her the world's heaviest woman alive as the current Guinness record holder is Pauline Potter of the United States who weighed kg lb in Dr Lakdawala, who has performed weight reduction surgeries on Indian minister Nitin Gadkari and Venkaiah Naidu, told the BBC that from looking at Ms Abd El Aty's medical reports and photographs, he believes that she weighs at least kg.
Ms Abd El Aty's family says she weighed 5kg 11lb at birth and was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition in which a limb or other body parts swell due to a parasitic infection, Dr Lakdawala told the BBC in a phone call from Mumbai. Dr Lakdawala said Ms Abd El Aty's sister got in touch with him in October and he began raising money to bring her over to Mumbai as her family was too poor and unable to bear the costs of chartering a flight.
Dr Lakdawala believes that Ms Abd El Aty does not have elephantiasis, but suffers from obesity-related lymphoedema which causes gigantic swelling of legs.
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is used as a last resort to treat people who are dangerously obese and carrying an excessive amount of body fat. In the UK, this type of surgery is available on the NHS only to treat people with potentially life-threatening obesity when other treatments have not worked.
Around 8, people a year in the UK currently receive the treatment. Where are you on the global fat scale? India 'heaviest baby' weighs 15lb.

What is bariatric surgery? The two most common types of weight loss surgery are:. Gastric bandwhere a band is used to reduce the size of the stomach so a smaller amount of food is required to make someone feel full. Gastric bypasswhere the digestive system is re-routed past most of the stomach so less food is digested to make someone feel full.
