Amber Clour was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma. 21 days after her eighth birthday, she was rushed to Children’s Hospital where she spent two weeks learning how to live her new life with Type 1 diabetes. She has embraced the thought of being a #walkingscienceproject and hopes to score an A+ on her efforts to maintain a stable BG while living life to the fullest.
Her life has been filled pursuing her passion for art, advocacy, non-profit ventures and travel. In 2015 she stepped down as Executive Director for a community artspace and gallery she founded to co-found DiabetesDailyGrind.com and the Real Life Diabetes Podcast. Amber’s – no filter – approach to sharing an honest look into her daily life resonates with the diabetes community. She hopes her story and those of podcast guests remind ALL people living diabetes – you are NOT alone.
On January 28th Amber celebrated her 37th “Diaversary”. When diagnosed, she never thought she would reach this milestone with her eyesight and all of her toes. Amber’s outlook these days is much different from the earlier doom-and-gloom years spent quietly hating life. Even though managing diabetes can be a challenge, she attributes much of her success to dealing with the T1D struggles.
Her dating profile shares she enjoys time with close friends and family, wine, long walks, decorating magazines, and new cooking adventures. #reallifediabetes
