    1.ANSWER- c.normal or increased TLC
    Emphysema is a COPD disorder and it is charecterised by hyperinflation of lungs with flattened diaphram which means increase in total lung capacity(TLC).
    a. cough- may or may not be
    b chest pain-
    no
    c.normal or increased TLC
    D. difficulty during inspiration-
    prlonged expiration

    2. Sorry no idea

    3.ANSWER- c.blood glucose levels
    Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) result from a reaction between carbohydrates and the free amino groups of proteins, lipids, and DNA.AGEs also named glycotoxins are found in excess in pathological situations such as diabetes mellitus, renal failure, and aging or after absorption of food containing glycated products.These age's deposite on vessel wall and lead to destruction.

    the correct choice to this answer is e cause when u administer plasma volume expander then it cause increase in blood colloidal osmotic pressure(which is one of the pressure that opposes filteration).now blood colloidal osmotic pressure is due to presence of plasma proteins in blood plasma(albumin,globulin and fibrinogen) which are too lare to pass thru endothelial capsular membrane and so remain in the glomerular capillaries.hence with the action of osmotic pressure,liquid has to move towards where blood has higher concentration of proteins, hence it moves back into the glomerular capillaries.hence reducing edema.
    hope tat helps!!

    The only reason i could think of is because of the word UNCOMMON...OI is not a rare disease.
    Albers-Schonberg disease
    is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Albers-Schonberg disease, or a subtype of Albers-Schonberg disease, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

    hi mrsraghava,
    thanks for ur compliments. i have just started studying for the board exam and just completed pathology. I used kaplan review, decks and past paper just as everyone. I also browse online bout the topic. About my mail id, u can mail me at [email protected]. but i just thought if u posted the questions in the forum may be we will get different kind of responses and we could compare the answers.
    thanks and good luck
