Hello...
any other riskd are there?? like diabetes...
and only way to reduce amniotic fluid is medicines prescribed by your doctor... other than that amnioreduction procedure which is again risky..

medicine, I was first prescribed - Glycomet, now on Insulin as took Steriod first shot today.

You need to let us know your period of gestation, the amniotic fluid index, coexisting conditions like diabetes.
