Glutamine to glucose

In Glutamine II, Mr. Barr says that it might be beneficial on a low carb diet, since it can be converted into glucose. Now if a person is on a low carb diet then why would he want extra glucose, better yet coming from such an expensive source?. According to T-Dawg diet any extra PROTEIN will be converted to glucose, so once again why from glutamine?. Now replenishment of ATP, I would very much like to hear more about that, since I am on t-dawg diet, and this may also help me reconcile all the dough that I have spent. Can one of the gurus elaborate on this:(
