Heart valves are not completely closed

Hello, I am Shafi Ullah Khan, I have a sister and she is 15 years old. She is a heart patient from childhood. She has a minor problem of Heart Valves, they are not completely closed. Due to that heart problem, Her Lips and Nails colour is Dark Blue. We consult to many doctors but there is no good sign of result. We are very worried about her. She has a low resistance against any illness. She got tired very soon. Whenever she walk upstairs or outside home, her whole face turned into Blue shade. She likes Tea very much. I tried to stop her many times but she never stops. Plz give me some good suggestion about her health and diet. Plz also tell me prescription about her.

your sister need echocardiographic examination and turning of lips and nails blue signifies that she has more than minorproblem . get her checked by good cardiac surgeon. she may be having a correctable abnormality by surgery. give her good diet and good amount of proteins.

a family member has a heart condition where his valves don t close, cause lack of oxygen, tiredness, weakness and coughing. he has been told he will need to do a surgery very soon. The blood leakage is a 3 out of 4 and will need to do surgery once diagnosed with a 4. if symptoms occur progressively and are constant, what are the effects? Will this cause a heart failure? Also, he has been just told he has bronchitis with all these symptoms, is this normal?

Hi, I have a heart murmur , I have had 2 heart surgeries. One was to close a hole, but after surgery, the stitches came out. I am not really sure what the difference between mitral valve regurgitation and mitral valve prolapse is and I can t remember which one I have, my doctor calls it a leaky. I know my surgery fixed vsd and my aorta is shaped like a spoon. My doctor said that the leak in my heart is moderate and steadily increasing. The past few days, my hands have been nonstop tingling and feel numb. I was wondering if this could be related? I am 19 years old, female, 5 foot 4 in 110 pounds. Thank you
