Recommended Tests for Hyopthroidism = Please help

Can somebody please tell me what are the recommended tests for Hypotyroidism? I have had the Reverste T3 and Free T3 test done thorugh one Doctor (who is not my normal Doc) but have now been told by my own Doc that I need a full battery of tests done to establish Throid problems.

Can somebody please tell me what tests should be done?

TSH
TPO antibodies, also possibly TG antibodies
FREE T3
FREE T4

Ferritin, Vits D, B12, and cortisol can also help. Depending on if you are a man or woman, estrogen/testosterone testing can also help with a diagnosis.
