Which deodorants can kidney patients use?

I noticed on all deodorants I have looked at that it says to not use them if you have kidney disease.  Can anyone tell me which deodorants kidney patients can safely use?  Please provide brand names.  Thanks.

Tom's of Maine has a natural deodorant that works well and is available in the supermarket or bigger drug stores. I use the unscented so it isn't just covering up the smell but actually deodorizing. I also use Terra Naturals because they have really nice scents. Mine is Pear-Apple. I have only found it in the bigger organic stores. I have never noticed a warning on them before about kidney disease. I just use the natural stuff to avoid the chemicals in deodorents which cause me irritation.

Thanks. I am brand new to knowing I have kidney disease and I didn't know about the deoderant issue. Wow my daily living and diet are sure about to change.

I see a nephrologist and I have never been advised to change deodorants. My issue was caused by over-use of NSAIDS so maybe thats why he hasn't been too concerned. I will ask him about the deodorant at my next visit.
