I am sure she has had numerous tests done. However, has she had her Vitamin D levels checked?  Vitamin D helps with the absorption of Calcium.  The test is the 25 0HD test.  Vitamin D is severly deficient in much of the northern latitude populations and can contribute to high Calcium levels

 Additionally, have them do a double check on her parathyroid if they have not already.  This modulates calcium absorption as well.
