In brief: Anemia

Is 10.5 your hemoglobin level? Either way whether this is your hemoglobin level or your iron (ferritin) level.
The level is low and indicates that you are anemic. If you do have iron deficiency and you dont respond to oral iron then you probably should get intravenous iron. Discuss firther with your md. Make sure that you dont have any other reason that can make you anemic besides low iron.
