Question What would determine the most appopriate dose of medcine? TSH level?

Hi, all. I would like to invite all of you here to give any opinions on it.

I am on the levothyroxine for the first two weeks and waiting for the added dosage of Levothyroxine by weeks afterwards. I found that some of Hypothyroidism sufferers have different level of TSH since they have the same level of antibodies, like TPO. I have a very high level of TSH when I was first tested without any medication before. Does it mean the hypothyroidism is more severe than the one who have the lowest level? And I also wonder if the TSH level which was tested firstly before any medication would determine the most fit dosage in the process of future medication or not. The higher TSH level, the more medcine HypoT sufferers need?

PS. My TSH 42 mIU/l ( 0.35-5.5 ) now, many times higher than the margin level. Following are other levels.

TT3 1.28 nmol/l (1.34-2.73)
TT4 63.24 nmol/l (78.38-154.70)
FT3 4.17 pmol/l ( 2.5-6.5)
FT4 10.5 pmol/l( 11.5-23.2 )
TPO 1000 (0-35)
TG 202 (.83-68)

Any response is much appriciated.
