How many miles on the truck? I would check all your turbo connections. Make sure no boots have slipped off or are
Worn/cracked, check the band clamps too! Then check the MAP sensor on the passenger side of engine compartment, there will be a hose that runs to the pass. side of the intake, same drill make sure hose is pliable, no cracks, remove fitting on intake make sure it not plugged! Last is pull the turbo and clean it up, pretty simple and there are YouTube videos out there on how.

Mine was doing what yours is doing, one silicon hose was not all the way on. Plus I had to replace the hose to the MAP sensor, and I cleaned up the turbo... I've seen 24psi since on my CTS boost gauge.

Let me know what you find!
