It might but...: If there is an obstructive process such as an impacted stone occluding the bile duct or bad inflammation that is spills over into the liver than liver enzymes may elevate. But there are many other reasons that they go up as well. And there are many gallbladder dysfunctions that do not affect the enzymes therefore enzymes alone are not sufficient to diagnose gb dysfxn. Need good history, images.
