He studied medicine at the University of Berlin as a student of Emil du Bois-Reymond and Hugo Kronecker, obtaining his medical doctorate in 1885. Later on, he was an assistant to physiologist Nathan Zuntz (1847-1920) in Berlin (Landwirtschaftliche Hochschule).

Loewy conducted extensive research in the field of altitude physiology. This included studies performed at the Jüdischen Krankenhaus (Jewish Hospital) in Berlin, and at Capanna Regina Margherita, a research station at the top of Monte Rosa, Italy. Here he worked with Dr. Zuntz, and other renowned scientists that included Angelo Mosso (1846-1910) and Arnold Durig (1872-1961). With Austrian physiologist Hermann von Schrötter (1870-1928), he performed pioneer research of pulmonary hemodynamics. In 1905, through the use of an endobronchial catheter, they were the first to achieve airway separation on a human subject. In 1925 he became a member of the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. Many of his published works were included in Pflüger's "Archiv für die Gesammte Physiologie", in the "Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie" and in "Virchow's Archiv". (en)
