Yes and it shows that you are doing a good job of avoiding gluten. The quickness with which the levels can drop are why it is so very important that folks stay on gluten until all testing is done. I hope your levels continue to drop and that you are feeling great soon.

My original TTg antibody were 111.6 two weeks after going gluten free they are 68, <20 range.

Is a drop like this normal?

Yes, plus remember there is some variation between measurements. That quick disappearance of antibodies in some people is why it's so hard to catch celiac once someone goes gluten-free. Others struggle to get rid of the TTG with a super-strict diet so be glad yours are going down fast!
