Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I understand your concern, and would like to explain that you shouldn't worry about!

A trace valvular regurgitation (leakage) is a trivial finding not rarely seen in normal healthy individuals; it has no clinical significance. So, just relax!

As your cardiac ultrasound has resulted normal, you shouldn't be afraid of performing every physical activity, as every normal individual.

Meanwhile, I strongly encourage you to continue following a healthy life-style and diet.

Hope to have been helpful to you!

Feel free to ask, if you have further uncertainties! Greetings!
