The fattest person in the world history is an American Carol Yager, whose maximum weight was 727 kilograms. She is the fattest woman on earth. There are plenty of articles and youtube world's fattest woman videos.
But how did it happen? Carol was born in 1960, Michigan, USA. Soon the little girl began to differ from her peers in weight and impressive dimensions. The main reason for her fat was insatiable appetite.
Carol admitted that the desire to eat was huge. It rose after she suffered some stress - one of her relatives molested. When she was 20, Carol Yeager weighed so much that could not stand on her feet. She was confined to bed. Carol could not even make basic movements. Her daughter Heather and paramedics took care of her. Then they began to understand that such weight will play a rather bad joke with Carol’s health. Every day the situation was rolling downhill – she was getting bigger.
As a result, Carol had to reach the well-known nutritionist Richard Simmons and showman Jerry Springer. At last Carol began to participate in the advertising of Jerry’s show. And as a payment she received free treatment. However, it turned out that there was no help from a nutritionist she received. Carol Yager hoped to improve her health, so she started to go to the local clinics.
But then she met a failure again- the doctors could not help her. Due to the excessive weight and bed rest doctors began to find new diseases and their complications. Hospitalizations became regular. She went to hospital 8-10 times per year.
Moreover, each time the transportation involved firemen and special equipment, whether it wasn’t possible to transfer such fat man in another way. In 1993, during another hospitalization, Carol's weight reached 540 kilograms. She suffered from edema. The fluid did not have time to leave the body, as a result of pressing on the internal organs and it even seeped through the skin. Thank to Hurley Medical Center Carol Yager could get rid of 235 kilograms, using a special diet.
Doctors helped Carol to get rid of the excess water from the body. In addition, nutritionists allowed her to eat only 1200 calories per day. But losing weight did not save a woman from heart failure, respiratory failure and excessive blood sugar. Three months later she came back from clinic and began to put on weight again. Her weight became even more than she had had before going to clinic. Her weight was 727 kilograms.
And, as a result, she became world-famous as the fattest man in the world and as world’s largest woman ever. Her body width reached 1.5 meters, and mass index was 251, when the normal one is only 18-25.
However, her 727 kilograms weight was not registered officially. It was only confirmed by the public. Earlier, the representatives of the Guinness Book of Records measured Carol. At that period having the growth of 170 centimeters, she weighed 544 kilograms. This mark was not enough for a new record.
During her life Carol was very famous because of her difficult situation. She gave plenty of interviews and showed up in hundreds of videos and programs. At that time people often searched ‘world’s biggest woman youtube’ to see how she looked like.
Like all other people who are different from us, Carol got lots of haters. Some people called her weak and were squeamish. Some people felt sad about her difficult situation. But people agreed that she made everything herself. She could not stop her huge appetite.
After another hospitalization in 1994, Carol Yager died. She died at the age of 34 years old. Doctors have recorded the weight at the time of death - 545 kilograms. The thickest woman was buried in a private cemetery of the city of Flint. Only relatives and friends came to her funeral.
