English translation:by exerting a feedback loop on the hypothalamus and pituitary
Explanation:
The amount of thyroid hormone made by your thyroid gland is adjusted by a gland in the brain called the pituitary. Another part of your brain, the hypothalamus, helps the pituitary.

hypothalamus and pituitary

Low levels of thyroid hormone in the blood are detected by the hypothalamus. When this happens, the hypothalamus secretes a hormone called thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH), which stimulates the pituitary to release thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH or thyrotropin). The release of TSH stimulates the thyroid gland to produce more thyroid hormone. Once adequate levels of thyroid hormone in the blood are detected by receptors on the hypothalamus and pituitary, further production of stimulating hormones by the glands is inhibited.
