My liver enzymes were also elevated the first time I was admitted in to the hospital back in August of '08 before I was diagnosed with UC. The liver enzymes have since stayes elevated and I am no on Asacol. I have had a lot of tests done to find out what the issue exactly was. I actually just had a liver biopsy done (not fun by the way).
Becuase of the elevated liver enymes, my GI diagnosed me with Primary Sclerosing Cholongitis (PSC), which is an autoimmune liver diesease. In a nutshell, I have the same issue as UC except its affecting my liver (and I dont have to poop as much).
I would ask you GI about this because if not monitored, it could become very serious. Not to scare you but I think this is the same disease that Walter Payton died of.
