Are you tired of struggling with your weight and not seeing results no matter how hard you try? Look no further because we have a solution for you! At Freeman Medical Clinic in Austin, we are now offering semaglutide (also known as ozempic or wegovy) to help you shed those extra pounds.

We understand that weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all approach, which is why we start with a comprehensive nutritional analysis and thorough history to determine the best plan for you. Our team of experts provides individualized support to ensure that you achieve your weight loss goals. 

But our support doesn't stop there. Dr. Freeman offers a plan that includes weekly life coaching sessions to teach you how to change your relationship with food for good. We understand that weight loss is not just about the physical aspect, but also about the mental and emotional connection to food.

And let's talk about the safety and effectiveness of semaglutide. This hormone, also known as ozempic or wegovy, has been proven to be both safe and effective in aiding weight loss. It works by mimicking the effects of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar and appetite.

So say goodbye to fad diets and grueling workouts that provide little return on investment. Semaglutide for weight loss is the real deal, and we are excited to offer it as a solution for our clients in Austin. Don't wait any longer to achieve your weight loss goals with the help of our dedicated team and this powerful hormone.

Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Weight management refers to the process of preventing weight gain. Studies show that adults between the ages of 18 and 49 tend to gain about 1-2 pounds per year. While that may not seem like a major difference, every pound adds up. 

Carrying excess weight not only decreases your energy levels and diminishes your mobility, it also raises your risk of chronic disease.

What can weight management treat?

Weight greatly influences your health. In general, the more weight you carry, the more likely you are to develop chronic diseases, such as:

Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes occurs when your pancreas doesn’t produce sufficient levels of the hormone insulin. This hormone is responsible for helping your body convert glucose (sugar) into energy for cells throughout your body. Without healthy levels of insulin, glucose builds in your blood and damages your blood vessels, which can result in nerve damage, vision loss, and even stroke.


Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that causes your joints to swell. Carrying excess weight puts pressure on the joints that can intensify chronic pain and joint stiffness.

Cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular diseases encompass a wide range of health concerns, including heart disease, stroke, and heart attack. Weight loss reduces strain on the heart to improve your cardiovascular function.

Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition that causes repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. If you have sleep apnea, you may stop breathing hundreds of times in a single night. Excess body weight can put pressure on your airways, which can increase sleep apnea symptoms, like loud snoring.


Carrying excess weight can affect the way your body stores hormones, which may affect ovarian and testicular function. Without treatment, weight gain may lead to infertility — an inability to conceive.

What is included in weight management?

The team at Freeman Medical Clinic offers specialized solutions for weight management. After a comprehensive physical exam, medical history review, and blood work, the team may recommend a combination of the following weight management treatments:

  • Following a healthy diet
  • Increasing exercise
  • Quitting smoking
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • IV infusion therapy
  • Supplements
  • Medication (now offering Semaglutide injections)
