Yes, you got the gene from one or both.

Yes, it is genetic so you got the gene from one or both parents. That does not mean they have it though. They may have the gene but not have had the celiac triggered. They should be tested though.

Hi,

Just going gluten-free is all you need to do for your pregnancy. Testing seems to be most accurate in the over age 3 group, less accurate between 2-3 yrs and even less accurate under age 2. So if your 2 boys are over 3, I would test them. If under 3, judge for yourself whether you see symptoms that warrant it.
