    I don't really know what subclinical colitis means. I was hoping somebody else who knew more might respond to your question. In my opinion, with her history of endomitriosis and you guys having a diagnosis already, even if it gets worse, you are taking good enough care of her health and paying enough attention to keep everything in check. If I remember, I'll try to look up subclinical colitis and see what I can find.

    Many people have slight histological changes that can precede 'full clinical' signs of IBD by many years. Some of the subclinical things that are found include dysplasia, or epithelial changes probably positive for dysplasia, and histologic signs of inflammation. Some research studies suggest the 'subclinical phase of IBD' can be far longer than many clinicians have previously appreciated - in some cases for as long as 7 years.
