We report the case of a 25 year old lady who presented to our clinic with a history of repeated episodes of life threatening acute allergic reactions. After a comprehensive history analysis, her episodes were found to be triggered by physical activity after breakfast. Specific IgE antibodies to wheat was positive. Her condition was diagnosed as wheat dependant exercise induced anaphylaxis (WDEIA). Elimination of wheat products from her diet, and advice to avoid exercise after food intake prevented her further episodes of anaphylaxis
