My husband has CKD and also Crohn’s disease. Will he do any further damage to his kidneys by taking Loperamide Hydrochloride which he is taking to alleviate Crohn’s? I look forward to an early reply.

Loperamide (also known as Imodium) is safe for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).  As with all medications, you should check with his physician to make sure that loperamide does not interfere with any other medication that he is taking.
