What if you have an inborn Mitral valve prolapse, then you have an anemia. It can be possible that having anemia is because of MVP?

In brief: MVP & anemea

MVP & anemea don't cause ea other, anemia has many types such as iron defeciency, aplastic, pernicious, anemia due to sepsis, hemolytic for example sickle cell anemia, thalassemias & other hemoglobinopathies, spherocytosis & so on, having anemea will most likely aggravate MVP symptoms.
I hope that helps answer your question. Good luck.

In brief: Unrelated

You become anemic if you are loosing blood or not making new cells as fast as the older ones wear out.
Each red cell lasts 90-100 days in most and you must make 1-2%/day to keep up . A leaky valve has no effect on this process. Most anemia comes from lacking the proper nutrients to build new cells, primarily iron.General health and medical conditions contribute to this.Talk it over with your doc.
