Living with UC
Great ideas to live by
With ulcerative colitis (UC), months can go by without symptoms. These stretches of time are known as remission. During these times, some people may like to think they do not have UC anymore. But there's always a chance that symptoms may return.
Some people may "tough it out" or tell themselves things are not really that bad. They may be used to excusing themselves from business meetings or family gatherings or canceling plans altogether. Some simple steps and the right medication may help them stay in remission.
We have several useful tips and tools that can help you plan carefully enough to do the things you really want to do. With a little preparation, you can help maintain your UC remission.
