Hello Follow a local gastroenterologist at your place. Things that need care are frequency of relapse, severity, duration and extend of UC. Stool frequency and blood in stools are most important parameters you should follow. If possible make a stool chart diary. Fecal calprotectin as advised by your physician can pick early relapse.
