Expert Q&A

Disease Education

Q. I am 19 and have ulcerative Colitis. I tend to use toilet 2-3 times a day and don't have diarrhea. I do get blood in my stool though, not a lot but some streaks of blood on the solid stool. I also experience slight pain whenever my abdomen is bloated. I've been prescribed Mesacol suppositories for 4 weeks and I take Mesacol 3.6 grams every day. How can I tell if I am in remission or a flare-up?
