$\Delta u=\lambda [\frac{1}{u^p}\frac{1}{u^q}]$ in $B$, $u=\kappa \in (0,(\frac{p1}{q1})^{1/(pq)} ]$ on $\partial B$, $0 < u < \kappa$
in $B$, where $p > q > 1$ and $B$ is the unit ball in $\mathbb R^N$ ($N \geq 2$). We show that there exists $\lambda_\star>0$ such that for $0<\lambda <\lambda_\star$, the maximal solution is the only positive radial solution. Furthermore, if $2 \leq N < 2+\frac{4}{p+1} (p+\sqrt{p^2+p})$, the branch of positive radial solutions must undergo infinitely many turning points as the maxima of the radial solutions on the branch go to 0. The key ingredient is the use of a monotonicity formula.
