Pediatrician, Cardiology 's  Response
Tricuspid regurgitation in a normal heart with normal valve may be secondary to pulmonary cause like pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension may be primary( without any cause) or secondary( due to some precedent factor).
You have not mentioned the ECHO finding regarding pulmonary hypertension.
Regular follow up is needed in this condition. Precaution must be taken regarding infection of the valve.
So I would suggest you to consult a cardiologist for proper management.
Overall prognosis and ability to lead a normal life can be judged only after assessing the severity of lesion.

Hello dear...
Tricuspid regurgitation of 2 m/s can be detected during echocardiography in 60-70% of normal individuals.
Better get your blood hemoglobin levels checked, as functional murmurs can be appreciated in cases of hyper dynamic circulation like anemia, etc.
But there is no need to worry as it doesn't have much pathological significance.
If everything is normal & symptoms still persist, then it will be better to consult a Cardiologist.
Other than a healthy diet, avoid stress, get good sleep, think positive and stay happy.
Wishing you a Healthy Life.
Take care
