    Hi!
    When I was about 13 I went to a pediatric heart doctor and got an echocardiogram of my heart and the doctor said I have MTR (mild tricuspid regurgitation). Does anyone know if this is disqualifying? I’ve read online that it is fairly common and usually causes no issues. I have had no problems with my heart and I don’t even know what prompted me to get the echocardiogram in the first place. All I have to document this doctors visit is a picture of my heart with some numbers and illegible writing (to me at least) on the back. Should I bring this to my medical exam?

    Thanks :)

    Mild TR is not DQ. Your pediatrician probably heard a murmur when listening to your heart so an echo was ordered.

    I would bring a copy of the echo report with you to the exam.

    The doctor may order a more recent echo.
