    My max heath is 12k

    Looks like it is 13,625 in the picture.

    Regardless, in 1 level your stats are going to change (usually for the worse). This is due to the game scaling your battle level. I know the article is out-dated but this should give you a good idea of what it means: http://esoacademy.com/faq/what-is-battle-level/

    On a side note, I would change a couple things:

    -Your mundus stone from the Ritual to something more magicka centered (i.e. Apprentice, Mage, etc.). Here are the mundus stones available: http://elderscrollsonline.wiki.fextralife.com/Mundus+Stones

    -Your bow to a destruction staff. I don't know what you have on your back bar, but for more survivability you could use a restoration staff.

    -You could also put 2 pieces of heavy equipment on IF you want more health and resistances but this is really not necessary if you keep shields up.
    *Shields are important for Sorcerers - you have access to a class shield called Conjured Ward (http://www.esohead.com/skills/28418-conjured-ward) or you can use the light armor shield called Annulment (http://www.esohead.com/skills/29338-annulment).

    Good luck.

    I forgot to add that there are a couple other ways to get "free" health:

    Structured Entropy skill -
    Might be considered a waste for Sorcerer though.

    Sorcerer Daedric Summoning skill line -
    It promotes higher stats by including pets in your gameplay. The downside is you have to sacrifice spots on your skill bars.

    Wards and surge with aoes should keep you alive. Dps will heal you, as will slotting a pet and the corresponding passives.

    Juggernaut in heavy armor plus 2 pieces heavy will as well :)

    Run 511, make sure your armor is at your level, don't use stamina skills. A sorcerer's suitability is related to their dps generally. I have 17.5k health on mine and about 43k mag.

    It looks as if you don't have food on.

    When you have max/max food on you should be around 17k HP.

    Undaunted will give you extra hp by equiping 1 medium, 1 heavy, rest light for your magicka sorc.

    I'd also run 1 purely health enchant gear to boost up to 17.8-18.
