High oil level can result in higher risk of diesel runaway which destroys your Engine.
Yes everyone will say the risk is low.
But that is one consequence.
Drive the car to a flat road and suck out some oil.

Sorry just reread the post. Your issue cannot be related to high oil level if oil was changed a year ago. As it is time to change he oil again, why don’t you just get it inspected during the oil change ?
