Brief Answer:
Thyroid number or thyroid level is the TSH value

Detailed Answer:

Thyroid number or Thyroid level is the amount of Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in the blood.
Normal TSH is dependent of normal reference range of the particular lab.

Some labs show 0.4-3 mIU/L and some show 0.4-4.5mIU/L as normal TSH range.
I would like to get few answers from you
1.What is the latest TSH level of you and what is the reference range of that lab?
2.What are the drugs you are taking for Thyroid and other hormonal problems that you have mentioned in medical history?
If you come back with above answers,i will clarify further.
