Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic

The above parameters are within the normal range... Since the diagnosis is first degree MVP ( mitral valve prolapse) nothing much to worry.. you can lead a normal life.. only thing you must do is to avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, smoking which will have harmful effect on heart, also you must not strain much by going tom Gym, or exercise.... If you have have palpitation(sense of feeling your heart beat) or chest pain then you can consult the cardiologist, they will treat you... complications of MVP are rare... Do not worry...
