BUCHAREST, Romania -- A 25-year-old Romanian woman who weighed 528 pounds (240 kilograms) when she gave birth to a baby girl more than 5 months ago, has died, media reported Monday.
Relatives of Victoria Lacatus said she died of a heart attack Sunday after developing a high fever and breathing problems.
Doctors from Craiova hospital in southern Romania said Lacatus' heart stopped. Hospital manager Florin Petrescu said doctors tried to resuscitate Lacatus for 30 minutes, a task made difficult because of her extreme obesity.
After she gave birth by cesarean section to a 6.4 pounds (2.9 kilograms) baby girl on Feb. 18, Lacatus gained another 44 pounds (20 kilograms), her sister Cristina Sosoiu told the daily Libertatea. Doctors had told Lacatus to go on a diet but she apparently kept eating, the paper reported.

She was a mom at 5 months and she weighed that much. Wow. How big was that baby?
“Doctors had told Lacatus to go on a diet but she apparently kept eating”
...thus, the death part.
>>Lacatus gained another 44 pounds<<
In 5 months???
This woman had some serious unchecked thyroid problems.
I thought only the USA had morbidly fat people.
How she got pregnant will, hopefully, remain a mystery.

She could go down to eating nothing but if she laid in bed all day, her metabolism shut down and she would lose only a pound or two a week. In the meantime, her body would be leeching protein from her muscles including her heart, unless she was put on a high protein diet.
Understanding that she was able to gain nearly 50 pounds in 5 months, something else was going on here.

“How she got pregnant will, hopefully, remain a mystery.”
Some things in life I truly don’t need to know.
Relatives of Victoria Lacatus....It is not clear why the baby does not live with her father, Costica Lacatus.
It doesn’t say husband anywhere in the article and i am not willing to make that leap.
IIRC, something about rolling in flour first.
528 lbs and 5’3” tall? That averages out to about 100.57 lbs per foot.
“This woman had some serious unchecked thyroid problems.”
Maybe. But probably not. 44 pounds in 22 weeks works out to just 2 pounds per week. If I stopped exercising and doubled my calorie intake, which I think I could do easily, I bet I could gain two pounds per week.
Someone had sex with this fat pig?
Yah. That's why it's news.
If it happened here, it wouldn't be news.
Apparently, until he passed away, the world’s fattest man was British. It cost the British taxpayers something like $1,000 a day (it’s a little less in British Dollars, which they weight by the pound, not the stone) to keep him alive.
Wow, there are some nasty, hateful replies on this thread. Horrible.
Coincidentally, Lacatus, in Latin means “quarter ton”.
