Hello, I have recently began to worry about an echo-cardiogram i had back in 2012, I am now 25, BMI 19 Eat mostly vegetarian Mediterranean based diet, take Fish oil supplements, probiotics, vitamin b-12 and get moderate exercise. Im working with a psychologist 2x per week for health anxiety. I also take klonopin 0.5 mgs as needed. I also use medical marijuana at around 0.8 grams per day and drink moderately. My question is will this lifestyle cause any cardiac risk or worsening of my echo results (such as sudden cardiac death) the findings are as follows:
All parameters were within normal range other than the remarkable findings below.
The aortic valve is trileaflet and normal leaflet excursion is evident. The anterior mitral valve leaflet is moderately thickened but there is no evidence of mitral valve prolapse or stenosis. No structural tricuspid or pulmonic valve abnormalities recognized.
Color-flow Doppler interrogation remarkable for presence of mild trcuspid insufficiency. Estimated RV systolic pressure is 33mmHg based on measurement at regurgitant tricuspid jet. The E-to-A ratio is 1.6:1. The peak aortic valve gradient is 10mmHg and mean gradient is 6 mmHg. Note that no shunts noted, no evidence of ASK or VSD with color-flow Doppler.
IMPRESSION: 1.Normal left ventricular size and systolic function.
2.No left ventricular hypertrophy.
3.Thickening of anterior mitral valve leaflet.
4.Mild tricuspid insufficiency.
5.Other findings as described above.
I asked a Dr on another forum and they said it was Mitral valve prolapse. But it says "he anterior mitral valve leaflet is moderately thickened but there is no evidence of mitral valve prolapse". Any help would be greatly appreciated i cant seem to calm my mind of this issue.
