No! You can't turn fatty acids or the acetates that derive from them into glucose, you need the glyoxylate cycle to do that.

i dont think burning of fats can prevent hypoglycaemia. if not mistaken, hypoglycaemia occurs bcoz of a lack of sugar in our blood, causing our blood glucose level to drop below the suitable level. i guess u will feel tired and always sleepy if u hv hypoglycaemia. if u r diabetic, i think u should not jus avoid eating sweety foods. u should always exercise, because exercise consumes energy, so the energy will obtained from the burning off glucose, so u dont have to worry too much abt having high blood glucose level. consult a regular doctor. in fact, my mother is also a diabetic. good luck to u!
