Eman underwent bariatric surgery in March in which doctors reduced the size of her stomach by two-thirds, so as to reduce her food intake.
Her next operations will take place in Abu Dhabi, where Ms Ahmed is being taken in an air ambulance, accompanied by a team of nine specialists, including a critical care doctor, paramedics and nurses.

Her genetic tests had showed that she has a rare gene mutation that can not be cured through surgery.
