In brief: Probably

It depends upon whether you have any kidney involvement with an autoimmune disorder. These disorders can affect the kidneys and can cause problems with potassium secretion.
Lisinopril can worsen that. If your kidney function and potassium are normal, then little to worry about but your kidney function and potassium should be checked within a week of starting Lisinopril just to be safe.
