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.
