High blood cholesterol is a serious problem because it is one of the main risk factors for coronary heart disease in addition to other factors, namely high blood pressure and smoking. If not treated immediately, high cholesterol levels will cause narrowing of the blood vessels, thereby increasing the risk of stroke or heart attack. Based on data from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia (2022), hypercholesterolemia sufferers in Indonesia are quite high, namely 28% and of the total hypercholesterolemia sufferers, 7.9% of people in the world died. In Central Java itself, based on the Non-Communicable Disease Profile (2016), there are 48.1% of the population suffering from hypercholesterolemia. Meanwhile, according to Surakarta City Health Profile data (2018) shows that the prevalence of hypercholesterolemia in Surakarta is 3.33% or 1,862 sufferers with the area with the highest prevalence being in the Kratonan Community Health Center with 221 people, while the lowest is in Pucangsawit Community Health Center with 13 people. .
