In brief: Can be very helpful

Not only do they teach what to do [see my health files diet sheet], but they can tell you how to do it, using foods your used to eating, gain better compliance.

In brief: Yes

It is always helpful to see a dietician if you have diabetes so you can learn more about portion control to improve your weight and to learn about the "right" food to eat.
A dietician can also provide you with information on carbohydrate counting which might be necessary in the treatment of diabetes.
