In brief: Untreated-low BP

When the adrenal glands don't work, blood pressure can be low if someone is not yet diagnosed or under-treated for the condition.
An addisonian crisis can cause blood pressures to plummet leading to shock.

Low blood pressure is a common feature of adrenal insufficiency.
Overtreatment with too high a dose of steroids can lead to high blood pressure.
