In brief: Thyroid
It depends who "they" are.
Most primary care doctors only check thyroid function - t4, freet4, tsh. Endocrinologists would also likely check antibodies against thyroid -- tpo, thyroglobulin antibody, TSH receptor antibody or tsi.

In brief: TSH
Thyroid stimulating hormone, it is low when there is too much thyroxine; and high when not enough! t-3 is the active form, and t-4 is a pro-/to less active form produced by the thyroid to modulate metabolism.
