In brief: Yes
This is a life threatening condition that can occur when addison's disease is inadequately treated.
People in addison's crisis can have low blood pressure, low blood sugar, low sodium level and high potassium level. Treatment for this is immediate administration of IV corticosteroids, saline and sugar.
