Hypercholesterolemia causes cardiovascular disease which is a disorder of the heart and blood vessels, one of the most significant causes of death in the world, and this needs to be anticipated by monitoring blood cholesterol levels regularly. The current method of monitoring blood cholesterol levels is using invasive technique by collecting blood samples. A simple device is needed to measure blood cholesterol levels that can be done without collecting blood samples. This study aims to develop a non- invasive technique for monitoring blood cholesterol levels using sensors utilizing infrared light absorption in body tissues, in order to simplify measuring blood cholesterol levels regularly for patients with hypercholesterolemia. The application of a non-invasive technique focused on developing a total blood cholesterol monitoring device using an infrared sensor with IR LED - 940nm wavelength as a transmitter. A photodiode was used as a detector with the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm and a microcontroller as the minimum system for controlling the value of the output voltage in the form of digital data and then converted onto total blood cholesterol. The measurement results using non-invasive technique was compared to the results using invasive technique.
