In brief: Yes
The goal of treatment of hypothyroidism is to obtain normal thyroid levels.
This is what your doctor was trying to do adjusting your dosage based on the results of your thyroid function tests. Elevated thyroid levels can be harmful increasing the chances of certain heart arrhythmias as well as the risk of osteoporosis.
