In brief: Not necessarily...

If it is only mild, you may get away with just watching diet and keeping active at this time.
..Since you are 35 wks, u are in pretty good window in term of maturity of babyreadiness for life outside..So any time from here is considered good! also, if needing treatment, there are meds beside insulin. Anyhow, regular f/u with your doc... Good luck with your pregnancy/delivery..And congrats!
