Goals

for ulcerative colitis
(UC) treatment

Take charge of your UC today — and tomorrow

When it comes to moderate to severe UC, you shouldn't have to choose between relief that's fast and relief that lasts. 


That’s why it’s important to:

think beyond symptom relief

strive for long-term remission

aim to repair the colon lining


Lasting

Remission is a period when someone experiences few or no UC symptoms and their colon lining has visibly improved. Your gastroenterologist can confirm if you're in remission based on the frequency of your bowel movements, a lack of bloody stools, and a visible improvement of the colon lining seen in endoscopy results. Consider treatment options that offer lasting remission, even at 1 year.

Endoscopy – A procedure where a flexible tube-like instrument with a light and lens for viewing is used to look at the inside of the digestive tract by entering through the mouth or anus. An endoscopy is used to both diagnose UC and to monitor your disease and potential complications

Visible repair

of the colon lining

A reduction in inflammation affecting the lining of the colon. This helps allow the colon lining to repair.

Inflammation – Your immune system’s natural defense to harm, such as redness or swelling. When you have UC, your immune system can cause chronic inflammation, contributing to colon damage and UC symptoms

remission

Remember that a key goal of UC treatment is to achieve steroid-free remission. It’s important to find a treatment option that can help you move toward remission and stay in remission without the need for steroids.

With RINVOQ, many people achieved remission—without the need for steroids—at 1 year.

yourself...

What might remission and colon lining repair look like in your day-to-day life? Do your UC symptoms keep you from doing things you enjoy? Maybe you're interested in taking a camping trip, or want to run errands without constant bathroom breaks.

That's why setting the right treatment goals can make all the difference.

Make your
treatment plan count


The first step is talking to your gastroenterologist about the importance of achieving both lasting remission and visible repair of the colon lining.

Now that I have my UC in check, I'm not afraid of my symptoms anymore. I'm ready to get back out there and explore.
