Hypercholesterolemia is a condition in which cholesterol concentrations in the blood exceed normal levels, resulting in death if total cholesterol levels exceed 240 mg/dl.

Paired T-Test was used in bivariate analysis. The results of the bivariate analysis using the T-test revealed that there was a significant effect of cupping therapy on total cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemia patients, with a p value of 0.00 < 0.05. According to the results of the variable analysis, there was an effect of cupping therapy on total cholesterol levels and hypercholesterolemia. According to the findings of the study, cupping therapy should be one of the therapies used to control total cholesterol levels, and it is hoped that other researchers will conduct additional research on cupping therapy. Cooperate with the laboratory so that total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglyceride levels can be determined.
