Yes, TSH should be between 1 and 2.  But your doctor should also check FT3 and FT4 to make sure these are in range.

You should have your levels checked about every 6 months, after things have stabilised.

Take your thyroid meds on an empty stomach.  Make sure you don't take any vitamins at least until 2 - 3 hours afterwards.

You can also read the drug insert, which will give you other precautions and things to watch for.
