Bloodwork - Am I Missing Anything?

So it will be a couple of months+ at the end of April since I started TRT. Current protocol is 40mg EOD Cypionate. I’m going to be asking my doctor for a requisition this week for a test near the end of the month.

Total T
Free T
E2 / Estradiol
SHBG
PSA
TSH
T3
T4
…I think he will do kidney and liver biomarkers and he usually also does RBC / WBC stuff as well. I’m assuming I do this on my no injection day. Please let me know if I’m missing anything important. Thank you in advance.

Ideally you would take the blood test on injection day, but before the injection.

Make sure you get FT3 and FT4, not Total T3 and T4.

A couple optional tests are
IGF-1
25-hydroxyvitamin D
