In brief: It will be hard to p

Metaplasia can be caused by any number of irritants.
In the duodenum, it could be related to bile exposure, acid exposure and unknown causes. It will be very hard to pin point the cause. But you already know it is there, so better monitor it regularly through your gastroenterologist's supervision.
