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 aims to score an A+ on her efforts to maintain a stable BG while living life to the fullest.
Amber’s – no filter – approach to sharing an honest look into her daily life resonates with the diabetes and medical community. She hopes her story and those of podcast guests remind ALL people living with diabetes – you are NOT alone.
On January 28th Amber celebrates her “Diaversary”. When diagnosed, she never thought she would reach this milestone with her eyesight and all of her toes. Her 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 in life to dealing with the highs and lows.
On a personal note – Amber’s life has been filled pursuing her passion for art, advocacy, non-profit ventures and travel. Her dating profile shares she enjoys time with close friends and family, wine, long walks, decorating magazines, and new cooking adventures. #reallifediabetes
