Liver problems are a common side effect or 'extraintestinal lesion' (EIL) of IBD. Milk thistle might help. This is from "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine" by Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno, page 594.
"Serious liver disease (i.e. sclerosing cholangitis, chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis, etc.) is also a common EIL, affecting three to seven percent of people with IBD. If individuals are demonstrating liver enzyme abnormalities, they should take silymarin, a group of flavonoid compounds derived from milk thistle (silybum marianum). These compounds exert tremendous effect on protecting the liver from damage as well as enhancing detoxification processes."
