JB, when the pancreas swells due to the inflammation associated with pancreatitis, it may hamper the drainage of bile from the liver. The pressure that builds up in the bile ducts due to this may then cause a rise in liver enzymes and is therefore to be expected.
Stopping alcohol and following a low sugar diet is about all he can do to protect the pancreas. There is no reason to believe that he has suffered liver damage, so he doesn’t have to worry too much about that. Good luck.
