The doctors and the lab say my mother's potassium level is too high. What causes this? And what is the remedy? Thanks.

It would be necessary more investigation but from my experience it is more likely that she has adrenal exhaustion. Potassium levels are affected by a hormone called aldosterone which is made by the adrenal glands. Tired adrenals due to poor lifestyle choices and stress result in hormonal imbalances, among other consequences. Look for professional help and get her cortisol levels tested.
