Best Blood Markers to Identify T Problem?

Hi, i’m not confident in the health care i have access to so i’d like to choose the best blood markers to check in my upcoming bloodwork - what markers do this group recommend? e.g. t total, free, SHBG etc etc. I don’t want to do it then realise i’ve left out 2 or 3 crucial markers.

lipids
CMP
CBC
IGF-1
TSH
free T3
free T4
prolactin
FSH
LH
DHEA-S
estradiol
total testosterone
SHBG
PSA
vit D

Suspicious of low thyroid? reverse T3

I would add

Free testosterone
Am cortisol
And maybe acth if you think you have adrenal issues. That’s what AM cortisol is for too

A1c
Also good to get baseline iron and ferritin
