Help Me Understand

Help me understand this... My son was recently diagnosed with celiac. Prior to his diagnosis, I had never even heard of it before. I have been trying to track down the genetic origin in my family and have thus had genetic testing done. I have been tested positive for DQ2 and DQ8, but have had a negative antibody test result. If I understand this correctly, this means that I am not currently reacting to gluten, but could develop celiac at any point in my life. Also, does this mean that BOTH of my parents are at risk? One parent gave me the DQ2 while the other gave me the DQ8 therefore putting them both at a higher chance of developing celiac???? Do I understand this correctly?
