I consider remission to be no urgency, no more than 3 BMs/day, no diarrhea, and no blood. However, I also know that if I eat too much of certain foods (a lot of fruit, beans, etc), I'll get some loose poop. That, to me, isn't a flare and has nothing to do with my UC...it's just my colon reacting as it should!
Status: Remission since late May 2009!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Diagnosed with pancolitis on 1/30/09
Currently taking Apriso (4 pills ONCE!! daily), Rowasa twice weekly, Natural Factors Ultimate probiotic 12/12 Formula, and Zoloft (25 mg).
