Many causes of heart murmurs
Q My 65-year-old dad has a medical history of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which have all been kept under control by medication.
During his recent medical check-up, he was informed that he has a slight heart murmur.
He has made an appointment to see a specialist, but his appointment date is sometime in the middle of the year.
Meanwhile, I would like to know more. What is a heart murmur? Why does it occur when all his conditions are well controlled?
