Am I in danger of brittle bones?

I broke my right arm close to the shoulder holloween weekend, simply by throwing my arm... I have no insurance so I haven t seen a doctor but at ER but find it strange it broke so easily. MRI was recommened and blood was drawn but other then that and a brief follow up, nothing was ever done. What could it be?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Such fracture needs further investigation including :

- vitamin D and calcium plasma levels
- a serum protein imuno electrophoresis in order to investigate for multiple myeloma, etc. Immobilization is needed, considering the fracture.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
