Dr. Nikolaos Zacharias
Obstetrics & Gynecology - Maternal Fetal Medicine
In brief: Fetal polyuria.
When the maternal blood sugar is elevated for prolonged periods of time, the sugar crosses over to the fetus and it cannot retain it in its kidneys, therefore profuse fetal glucosuria ensues.
This leads to polyhydramnios.
