In brief: Yes.
Uncontrolled persistent asthma causes airway remodeling that can slowly progress to emphysema (quicker in smokers and people with severe reflux).
Treatment of underlying conditions can deter that from happening.

In brief: Possibly
If asthma is poorly treated, it is possible for the changes - which are typically reversible in asthma - to be permanent.
So, make sure your asthma is under the best control.
