Stevia is listed as very high in oxalates on this websites food lists


A low oxalate diet (LOD) is not a matter of total exclusion from
oxalates but more of managing the amount of oxalates one intakes to
allow the body to rid itself of oxalates at a rate that is tolerable to
the individual. It is another aspect of leaking gut. There are many
parents whose autistic kids are on a low oxalate diet with great
improvement seen when consuming low oxalates but if the diet is taken to
fast (ie decreasing the level of oxalates) then their symptoms get
worse. I know for me my symptoms of achiness, lack of bladder control,
vulvodynia have all decreased since going low oxalate.

So in summary for a person on LOD having stevia can mean not having
another food later on and/exacerbating their symptoms. If you are
interested in LOD there is more info on the website link above and I can
provide more if you want to email me privately.
