white smoke out of the exhaust

So i need a little help, right before i deployed while i was driving my truck i started seeing white smoke coming out of the exhaust, usually for about the first 5 minutes of driving if not more. i have had my injectors checked and have found out 4 of them are weak, and am planning on replacing them at the end of this deployment but i was wondering if there could be a second underlying issue that could be causing the smoke? any help you guys could give would be awesome. my truck is an 2005 f250 6.0.

ficm could be low voltage and the voltage may climb as the truck warms up. also could have a slow EGR leak and the coolant burns off after a while and the leak is small enough not to leave a continuous trail of visible smoke. what were the temps when it was smoking white? i could just be cold as hell outside lol.

it was probably around 50-60 degrees outside, and how can i test the ficm when i get back from my deployment? i was planning on replacing it with the bullet proof diesel one anyway but it would still be nice to know if its going bad. and im also going to replace the egr with the bullet proof diesel upgrade too. if those are the issues do you think that would fix the problem? thanks again
