May 2, 2016 · Mitral Valve & Tricuspid valve regurgitation: when to see a cardiologist? in Heart & Blood Health

Thank you for your supported comments. I appreciate you sharing of the anxiety that comes when you hear of this health issue even if at this time is not a serious problem. I see my internist this Thurs to discuss this matter. If he does not think I need a cardiologist at this time I’m going to tell him, i will feel more secure of being under a cardiologist care now to prevent an unfortunate future event with my heart failing me. I’m almost 70 andi believe in prevented healthcare. Again, thank you for your advice and support. It was most appreciate. Take care and God bless!

Thank you for such a quick response. It was most appreciated.
Unfortunately my primary doctor has not gotten back to me, on this matter
and my abnormal TSH and T4 free test; this ha made me uneasy. I took it
upon myself and saw an endocrinologist yesterday, and made adjustments to
my medication and took more blood work to check adrenaline functioning.
I’m wondering if I should take the bull by it horns and see a
cardiologist. I am looking forward to reading others of their experience
with the same issue.
Thanks again,

Have a great day!

My echocardigram results were good, but there was one issue that I questioned, if I should see a cardiologist for future testing. The exact statement from the reporti is: “Valvular structures reveals a trace to mild tricuspid regurgitation”. Even though the report is good that statement set a red flag for me. Should I see a cardiologist at this time or am I overreacting? I have symptoms pertaining to this condition but my thyroid test results indicated hyperthyroidism, which also give the same symptoms.
