Is Stevia a safe sugar substitute for Peritoneal Dialysis patients to use?

I am unaware of any problems with sugar substitutes in patients who are on peritoneal dialysis.  Stevia is a sugar substitute that has limited use in the United States.  I am not aware of any reports of problems in kidney patients and use of Stevia.
