Hi.. No additional diet is required specifically for mitral valve prolapse... But in presence of a coexisting medical condition, dietary changes specific to the condition is needed.. In general, a low fat, low calorie diet would be essential...

Cardiologist Dr. Prashant Chandra Sinha's  Response
There is no specific dieat for Mitral valve prolapse. First to reassure you Mitral valve prolapse is not a serious condition and 5-10% people can have it. Some time when it is associated with Leaky Mitral valve then it needs regular follow up and may be treatment.
As far as diet is concerned , people with Mitral valve prolapse tend to have symptoms of palpitation which gets aggravated if you are drinking too much of Tea, Coffee , Alcohal and Coke . So these things should be taken to minimum if some body has got symptoms.
