In brief: Blood test
The best way to ensure good control of your daughter's hypothyroidism is to have regular blood tests especially that her continued growth will require that she receives adequate dosing.
Avoiding giving thyroxine with any calcium containing food will also help in ensuring maximal gut absorption.
