In regards to mild UC, usually the GI will diagnose the severity of the disease via a colonoscopy checking the level of inflammation. As far as remission, this is from the CCFA...
"When ulcerative colitis treatment is effective, you can have prolonged periods of time without symptoms or active disease. When this happens, you're considered to be in remission, according to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA).
“There’s no clinical definition of remission — it just means your medication is working," says Keith Sultan, MD, a gastroenterologist and assistant professor at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine in Hempstead, N.Y.
For many people with ulcerative colitis, remission means that symptoms of the condition have improved to the point that they're no longer interfering with daily activities, according to research published in March 2014 in the journal Gastroenterology & Hepatology. However, remission doesn’t mean you no longer need treatment for ulcerative colitis."
