Our best guess right now at the root cause is an inability (possibly genetic) to metabolize NSAIDs, coupled with significant NSAID consumption to treat some other issues. She stopped the NSAIDs completely in December 2014, and while it took a couple months to have an effect it seems to have done the trick.
We still don't fully understand it. For example, potassium levels were lower than would be expected even for complete NSAID poisoning of kidney enzymes. But ultimately we don't need understanding so long as we can manage it.
