Possible....remember your motor oil is firing your injectors. I'd change it first thing and go from there

Start with the basics, oil and filters. After that, get the truck scanned, check the oil temp, I am guessing the truck is getting a bad reading when cold and cutting back fuel and oil.

That many miles on it you should have put some REV X in it, 2 bottles in the oil at oil change then one every oil change there after.

It's not the fact that it's a diesel, but the fact that is uses an HEUI system.
