? on Complete Workup Tests

I am going to change doctors and want to request a complete workup with the new doctor. I have been previously diagnosed with hypothyroidism and as pre-diabetic. Both parents have type 2 diabetes, cholesterol issues, and hypothyroidism. I am also concerned with Cushings and Adrenal Fatigue due to my Lupus. So here is what I am thinking I should have tested. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated. If you think it's overkill, let me know that as well.

General Health Screen including
Lipid Profile (Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL, LDL, VLDL and risk factor)
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)

A full Throid Panel including
(Free T4) FT4
(Free T3) FT3
(Reverse T3) RT3
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody/TPO
Anti-thyroid AB

A full Diabetic Screening including
GAD ab
Fasting Insulin

An Adrenal Stress Saliva Test 6xcortisol, 3x dhea-s

A hormones test including
AM Cortisol
