How is Heart Valve Disease Diagnosed?

Heart valve disease doesn’t have to get in the way of the things you love. If you have any new or worsening symptoms or have concerns about your heart, make it a priority to talk to your doctor as soon as possible.

Your doctor will look for signs of a heart murmur, usually the first hint of heart valve disease.2 If a heart murmur is discovered, your doctor may perform other tests, such as an echocardiogram, to determine what is causing your heart murmur and if you have underlying heart valve disease. These tests are very important as they screen you for different types of heart disease.
