Hello. I have found no acupuncture profiles to reduce hypercholesterolemia.
Although acupuncture can help many conditions, i don't believe that this is one of them.

In brief: No

Acupuncture has no value in lowering cholesterol.
It has been shown to have some value in other regards, but only diet and exercise can lower cholesterol.
