Amber Clour, Diabetes Daily Grind founder, has dedicated the fourth chapter of her life to diabetes advocacy as she struggled to connect with others in the earlier years managing this disease. What started out as a blog in 2014 quickly blossomed into one of the largest diabetes related podcasts (Real Life Diabetes) in the world.

The Diabetes Daily Grind is a non-profit, charitable 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to provide real support and resources for all people living with diabetes. We’re not promising a cure, but use our stories to help bridge the gap between the diabetes and medical community.
