I will be in Asia for 3 weeks beginning Nov 3rd and am trying desperately to figure how out to say, write, or somehow communicate that I can't 'eat gluten? Does anyone know how to communicate this in Vietnamese and Khmer (official language of Cambodia)? Thanks a million. I'm getting really worried about being sick on my vacation. I was diagnosed with Celiac about 2 years ago.

Look on the web for "gluten free dining cards". Or when you get there, if you are staying in a big hotel or somewhere with someone who speaks English, They could write something for you. Don't just say "gluten" - I would list that I can't have wheat and anything that would be in the food that has wheat or soy sauce (if they use the kind with wheat there). You will neeed to do some research on the food. Sticking with fruits & veggies and plain meat will be the safest.
