Yes, It does mean that one of your parents passed it to you but it doesnt necessarily mean that that parent also has celiac. You did get the gene from one of your parents though.

One of your parents has to have the gene. It (unfortunately) got passed on to you. Just because you have the gene, it doesn't mean that you'll get celiac. HLADQ2 is also the gene for narcolepsy. It just depends upon the allele, and if it gets passed onto you. It's kind of like sets and subsets!
