In brief: Unlikely
Although there's theoretical risk of ppl with reactive hypoglycemia may burn out their pancreas and develop diabetes, it's unlikely repeated bgs in 70's and some that are even lower suggest you have diabetes.
Can check A1c for another way to look for dm. Young women can have bg in 40's and have it be normal...Depends on what type of symptoms u have. May need to see endo to determine if low bg sig.

In brief: Medication adjuste
As a diatetes patients, your blood sugar levels fluctuated can and does ebb and flow over time.
You need take medication adjustement after consulte your doctor, the use of cgms and Insulin pump makes diabetec therapy ideal.

In brief: What is your diet
Low blood sugar does not mean diabetes, people who are excessively dieting may have their blood glucose, or if you were fasting at the time the blood test was drawn, will show low blood sugar; however, a blood glucose of 70 is not abnormal, unless you are having symptoms such as sweating, light headed, palpitation etc.
. When the blood glucose is 70, then excessive secretion of Insulin may cause it.
