“I was pretty worried at first but the doctor explanation was very detailed and said that many females have this ailment nowadays. The ailment will cause blood to backflow but my condition is only very slight and I do not have any symptoms of chest pains, breathing difficulties, etc now thankfully.”
One of the doctors at a Taiwanese hospital said that heart mitral valve prolapse is a common heart ailment and is especially prevalent among females who are young and have petite body figures. It’s understood that 20% of females above the ages of 20 have this ailment. Most do not require treatment however and keeping a healthy lifestyle will help to improve the condition.
