Endo not testing what I'd expect

From: mollyelphie - 1 year 7 weeks ago

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum, but I was diagnosed with autoimmune thyroiditis two months ago after seven years of being told by various doctors that there was nothing wrong with me and being sent to therapists. I have a whole host of symptoms of both hypo and hyperthyroid and next week I have a follow-up appointment with my endo.

These were my numbers when they were last tested two months ago (I live in Spain so I don't know if these are different in other countries, I'm totally new to this):
Free T4: 0,99
TSH: 1,84
Thyroglobulin antibodies: 31,8
TPO antibodies: 915,5

Tomorrow I'm doing another blood test before my appointment next week but I've just noticed that my endo is only looking at TSH. I was just wondering if this was normal or if I should ask about why she's not re-testing the rest?

Thanks so much for your help!
