Hi bharani
Fluid index of6.6 is quite low
Taking glucose causes no harm.
Inspite of this,you should keep following things in mind-
Do daily foetal movements count-should be 10-12,
Bed rest in left lateral position
High protien diet
consult your gynaecologist for color doppler to know whether
foetus is alright or compromised.
