you cant diagnose UC through an endoscopy.
only through a colonoscopy as it only affects the colon.
and yes it is possible to see UC while in remission when you are that close to having a flare.
usually (and i say "usually") you will still have signs of inflammation that havent completely healed yet even though you feel fine.
but then again, im not a doctor and i could be wrong
steph - 32 - female - UC since 2000
currently flaring again.. grrr! (triggered by stress - grrr)
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
enteric coated fish oil -omega 3 (so they get all the way to my colon)
vitamin D3 x1 a day
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
tumeric capsules x3 a day
