Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Most people with mitral valve prolapse lead normal, productive and symptom-free lives.

Doctors generally won't recommend restrictions on your lifestyle or any limitations on your personal exercise or dietary program. However, ask your doctor if he or she recommends any changes to your lifestyle. If you have severe mitral valve regurgitation, your doctor may recommend you avoid exercises that could worsen your condition, such as weightlifting.

Your doctor may recommend regular follow-up visits to evaluate your condition.
