    That ^^^ but I'd switch the T3 & T4 to FT3 and FT4.

    You don't need thyroid antibodies done every time, but if you are making changes to hopefully improve the number, or initially than yes. Also if on medication it might be a good thing to test reverse T3 if you are responding poorly to medication, for example, proper TSH and free T3 levels, yet hypothyroid symptoms.
