... I don't know about lisinopril and cholesterol, but hctz can rise cholesterol and glucose. Most diuretics can. My mom has been on lasix, hctz and now torsemide, which raised her cholesterol drasticly. It also made her a1c go extremely high. ... (5 replies)
... I was just wondering if anyone else on lisinopril HCTZ noticed if their triglycerides rose? ... (5 replies)
... To be honest, my mom has to occasionally take a diuretic. She monitor her sodium intake religously. She has under 1 gram of sodium daily.

... phja, No, I never had any cholesterol meds. The closest was the fenofibrate (Tricor) I took for elevated triglyceride/low HDL problems. I had triglycerides in excess of 400 mg/dL at one point and Tricor helped me get them back down to under 150. My dietary changes didn't come until a few years after inclusion of Tricor.
