What hormones from the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and possibly thyroid cause calcitonin to be released?

In brief: Calcitonin

Calcitonin is not affected significantly by any of these.
Calcitonin does not do much of anything in humans. When someone has a thyroidectomy, we don't give back calcitonin.
