Default Pseudohypoparathyroidism x secondary hypoparathyroidism

Hey guys, wasup
Id appreciate some help concerning this subject coz it s really confusing to me. Are signs and symptons the same? In both, FA says there is hypocalcemia, so why would these be separate entities, considering that 2ary contains various causes and by definition is high pth that has an extrinsic cause ( pseudo too?)
I would be thankful by any light in this subject

In pseudo the receptor is defective so pth will be high. In 2ndaryhypopara pth is low.
Pseudohypopara is similar to 2ndary hyperpara due to renal failure in terms of lab values (not the mechanism)
