Questions thought of while on the A.T.

I have a couple questions for anyone that may have answers:
1. Why do my father-in-law's hands and fingers swell while hiking? After 10 mnutes of resting and the pack off his back he can feel a noticeable improvement. Are his shoulder straps too tight?
2. I have celiac disease which means I can not eat foods with any sort of wheat, barley, malt, or oats. I have been able to find a store online that sells the "Mountain House" style of pre-packaged meals that are certified gluten-free but I would like to move away from that type of dinner if poosible. Any gluten-free hikers out there?
