I know you guys are all great problem solvers and always come up with excellent suggestions, so here's my problem.

I thought I was casein intolerant, but no.
I was eating Kinnikinnick breads for a long time and I eliminated the breads and dairy. I reintroduced dairy with no problems. I haven't had Kinni. bread again because I have been feeling great (no bm issues). The bread I was eating contained flax seeds. Has anyone had any loose stool issues with flax seeds? Can anyone think of anything else that could have been a problem for me?

I'll just throw this out there--does the bread have tapioca starch/flour in it? It's not that unusual to be sensitive to that, and for me, the reaction is really bad--similar to a glutening. (D, nausea, stomach pain)

One of the things on the list I got from my doctor for natural stool softeners was flax oil.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Flax has an awful lot of fiber and definitely helps keep things moving through :lol: . But unless you have a specific problem with flax or were eating a WHOLE lot of flax seeds in that bread, I don't think it should caused major problems. Hmmm . . .

I checked the ingredients and there isn't any tapioca.

Hmm, flax or not? I guess I could just eat some flax and find out. Maybe I'll try the bread again and see if anything changes.
