In brief: Medication effects

Certain medications require close monitoring to make sure that their blood levels are high enough to be effective, but not so high as to increase the risk of side effects.
You may also have a disease (such as thyroid disease or diabetes) that tends to vary in severity over time, and it is important to make sure your treatment is adequate.

In brief: Frequent blood tests

It would be more helpful for you to ask the physician (p) who is ordering those tests your question.
Your p knows you the best and can give you an informed answer to your it. If your p does not give you a satisfactory answer, describe what blood work is being ordered and then your question can be answered better.
