Trace Pulmonic/Mitral/Tricuspid regurgitation
Recently I had an echo done. It showed I have trace pulmonic/mitral/tricuspid regurgitation. Should I be concerned about having trace regurgitation in all three areas? And could dehydration have an effect on this being seen on the echo? I was tired, not feeling, heart rate slightly elevated, dehydrated? If I was not experiecing those symptoms would this had been seen on the echo?

Trace, mild, etc. related to heart valves almost always is considered medically insignificant and does not progress nor cause any symtoms.  

Dehydration would cause a faster than normal heart rate.  It would show and provide a false positive with an EKG.  An echo doesn't integrate a fast heart rate unless it is very fast inhibiting the filling of blood in left ventricle ventricle and wouldn't show a problem with mild leakage of valves.

Thanks for the question, and hope this helps.  Take care.
