Grade 2 Dystolic Dysfuntion

So for many years I have been treated for atrial tachycardia with pvc’s. Even had an ablation about 5 years ago which helped for awhile. The symptoms have now come back and a echo was done as well as a halter monitor. My echo showed
Left atrium mildly dilated, right atrium mildly enlarged, aortic valve is trileaflet and mildly thickened. Left ventricle mild hypertrophy. I was told I had grade 2 diastolic dysfunction. So my question is? Are all these separate issues ? Or do these issues make up the diagnosis of the diastolic dysfunction
Also my resting heart rate is always in the 90’s if I go do dishes, walk to another room or shower my heart rate goes up over 100. Is this all the dysfunction?

Most probably yes.  But what is causing the dysfunction... is anyone looking into that?
