    Shrinking, wasting of a muscle 

    Atrophy refers to the shrinking or wasting of a muscle. This can occur due to various reasons such as lack of use, injury, or certain medical conditions. When a muscle undergoes atrophy, it loses its mass and strength, resulting in a decrease in size. This can lead to weakness and impaired function of the affected muscle. Atrophy can be reversible if the underlying cause is addressed, such as through exercise or physical therapy, but in some cases, it may be permanent.

    Lying flat on back with face upward

    Supine refers to the position of lying flat on one's back with the face upward. This position is commonly used in medical examinations or procedures, as it allows for easy access to the body and provides a clear view of the face and chest. Being in a supine position also helps to relieve pressure on the spine and allows for better relaxation of the muscles.

    Wear and tear on body

    Stress can cause wear and tear on the body. When a person experiences stress, their body goes into a "fight or flight" response, releasing stress hormones like cortisol. Prolonged exposure to stress can lead to chronic inflammation, which can damage tissues and organs over time. Additionally, stress can negatively impact the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to illness and disease. This wear and tear on the body can manifest in various physical and mental health issues, such as cardiovascular problems, digestive disorders, anxiety, and depression.

    Basic functioning unit

    A nephron is the basic functioning unit of the kidney. It is responsible for filtering waste products and excess water from the blood to produce urine. Each kidney contains millions of nephrons, which consist of a renal corpuscle and a renal tubule. The renal corpuscle filters blood and forms a fluid called filtrate, while the renal tubule reabsorbs necessary substances from the filtrate and excretes waste products. This intricate process allows the kidneys to maintain the body's fluid balance, regulate blood pressure, and remove waste materials from the bloodstream.

    Process when breath is held and mouth, nose and glottic opening are closed 

    The Valsalva maneuver is a process where a person holds their breath and closes their mouth, nose, and glottic opening (the opening between the vocal cords) simultaneously. This maneuver increases pressure in the chest and abdomen, which can be helpful in various situations. It is commonly used to equalize pressure in the middle ear during activities such as diving or flying, and it can also be used to diagnose certain medical conditions or assist with certain medical procedures.

    Death of body Tissue 

    Necrosis refers to the death of body tissue. It occurs due to factors such as injury, infection, or lack of blood supply. During necrosis, the affected tissue undergoes cellular changes, leading to its death. This can result in inflammation and the release of harmful substances into the surrounding area. Necrosis is different from apoptosis, which is a programmed and controlled form of cell death.

    Loss of appetite 

    Loss of appetite, also known as anorexia, refers to a decreased desire to eat or lack of interest in food. It can be caused by various factors such as illness, medication side effects, emotional stress, or medical conditions. Anorexia is a common symptom in many diseases and can lead to weight loss and malnutrition if not addressed. Therefore, the term "anorexia" accurately describes the condition of loss of appetite.

    Temporary lock of oxygen to a body tissue 

    Ischemia refers to a temporary restriction or decrease in blood flow and oxygen supply to a specific body tissue. This can occur due to various reasons such as blood vessel blockage, reduced blood flow, or impaired oxygen delivery. The lack of oxygen can lead to tissue damage and if not resolved promptly, it can result in cell death. Ischemia can affect different organs or tissues in the body, including the heart, brain, or limbs, and can cause symptoms such as pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area.

    Negative stress  

    Negative stress refers to the harmful or detrimental effects of stress on an individual's physical and mental well-being. It is typically characterized by feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, and a sense of being unable to cope with the demands of a situation. Distress, on the other hand, is a term used to describe the negative emotional or psychological response to stressors. It encompasses the negative feelings and discomfort associated with stress. Therefore, distress is the correct answer as it accurately captures the concept of negative stress and its impact on an individual.

    Process of building up bode tissues 

    Anabolism refers to the metabolic process in which complex molecules are synthesized from simpler ones, leading to the building up of body tissues. This process requires energy and is responsible for the growth, repair, and maintenance of cells and tissues. Anabolism involves the synthesis of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids, as well as the storage of energy in the form of ATP. It is the opposite of catabolism, which involves the breakdown of complex molecules into simpler ones. Anabolism plays a crucial role in various biological processes, including muscle growth, bone formation, and the production of hormones and enzymes.

    Self regulating body processes 

    Homeostasis refers to the ability of the body to maintain a stable internal environment despite external changes. It involves various self-regulating processes that work together to keep conditions within a narrow range. These processes include temperature regulation, pH balance, blood sugar control, and fluid balance, among others. Homeostasis is essential for the proper functioning of the body's cells, tissues, and organs, and any disruption in this balance can lead to health problems. Therefore, the term "self-regulating body processes" accurately describes the concept of homeostasis.

    Break down of body tissues 

    Catabolism refers to the breakdown of body tissues. It is a metabolic process in which complex molecules are broken down into simpler ones, releasing energy in the process. During catabolism, large molecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are broken down into smaller molecules like amino acids, glucose, and fatty acids, respectively. This process is essential for providing energy to the body and for the synthesis of new molecules. Therefore, catabolism is the correct answer for the given question.
