meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD)- what are the causes?


I have written about this previously. I have had about 4-5 chalazions since May and have been diagnosed with MGD. I will be seeing an ophthalmologist soon.
I'm curious as to what are the underlying causes MGD? I'm not convinced that I have blepharitis. I don't wear contact lenses and had good hygiene.

Thank you!!
