Can high blood protein levels or sjogren's syndrome cause elevated liver enzymes test results?

Sjogren possible: But not likely with high serum protein. There is a condition called primary biliary cirrhosis that is associated with Sjogren and certain drugs used for Sjogren can potentially affect liver as well. Best thing to do is to see/talk to a rheumatologist.
