Hello and hope you are doing well.

Mild mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitations may not need therapy. More so if you are asymptomatic now. However, you will need to closely monitor your symptoms and follow up with your doctor at regular intervals to see for changes in valve diameter, if there is dilatation of left ventricle or if the ejection fraction has decreased. Also, if you have hypertension keep it under check.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
