Amniotic Fluid excess

Patient

Q: Hello doc, Am sandeep, my wife is 22-23 weeks pregnant, as our regular consultant suggested to do TIFFA scan in 22-23 week, After the reports, our consultant says that the Amniotic Fluid is excess ( in the reports Ploy hydramnios AFI - 20.5 ) Actually our consultant suggested in 20th week to use L-Arginine Granules for Amniotic Fluid but after the TIFFA scan in 22-23 week, our consultant says Amniotic Fluid is excess so stop using L-Arginine Granules. I have doubt regarding Amniotic Fluid levels, precautions to be taken and how to control Amniotic Fluid to correct level. Will Coconut water, butter milk and oranges and any other liquid state fluids will increase the Amniotic Fluid?
