A simple TSH test is the best test to check your thyroid status. Normal level of TSH is between 0.4 - 4.2 ug/dl
Free Thyroxine level is also very useful in diagnosing thyroid problems.

Recent gain of weight is another common sign of low thyroid levels
Testing your Serum HDL Cholesterol is a good first line investigation for hypothyroidism
