In brief: 21 hydroxylase AB

An addisonian crisis is when your body is in shock from adrenal insufficiency.
To diagnosis addison's disease, the combination of blood tests for electrolytes, glucose, 21 hydroxylase antibodies, and a high dose acth stimulation test would help make or reject the diagnosis.
