Answer: Hi dear, common causes of excess amniotic fluid include gestational diabetes, fetal anomalies with disturbed fetal swallowing of amniotic fluid, fetal infections and other, rarer causes. You can't do anything only doctor can guide you better. Follow doctor's instructions.. You must avoid sugar and sweet food and fruit like banana.  In some cases, a drug might be prescribed to reduce the amount of urine the baby passes. If you have severe polyhydramnios, you may need some of the amniotic fluid to be drained off to reduce the risk of premature labour or problems with the placenta.
