An elevated rate indicates inflammation.

If Asacol was only recently introduced I would certainly wait a while longer, otherwise it may be advisable to speak to your doctor about dosages.

The lower the number, the lower the inflammation. A couple yrs ago my test registered 4 & my gastro commented that it was an "excellent" result. RE Asacol: some members here have written that they find from experience they need to take 8 Asacol daily to keep from flaring. So, it could be that you need to increase your dosage, or take it in combo with Rowasa or Canasa if you have stubborn procto-sigmoid inflammation. Hang in there! / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)
