The "moderate" regurgitation is troublesome. Are you on any blood thinners, like Warfarin?
What were the Left Atrium measurements from the M-Mode report? The most significant problem, IMHO, is the Enlarged Atrium. Most of the time, an enlarged atrium is not of "immediate" concern, depending upon the enlargement, but one might consider lifestyle changes to help to prevent the Atrium from further enlargement and to protect the rest of the heart.
Do you smoke, or are you around anyone else who smokes?
Do you eat a relatively healthy diet? If so, how many calories (rough estimate) per day and per meal?
I have an Echo once a year, and get the M-Mode report. This allows me to follow my own progress, year to year, and, depending upon the readings, it allows me to make helpful adjustments to my diet, and to my medications, through my Cardiologist.
