The investigators aim to evaluate the levels of serum Vitamin D in children having their tonsils removed and appropriate controls. The investigators hypothesize that children undergoing tonsil removal will have lower Vit D levels than accepted norms and when compared to controls. The investigators also hypothesize that Vitamin D deficiency will correlate with indicators of inflammation such as C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and tonsil size.


Inclusion Criteria: - children age 1-12 undergoing adenotonsillectomy (active) or elective surgery such as hernia repair (control) Exclusion Criteria: - children on systemic steroids or multivitamins containing vitamin D - control subjects with: a history of snoring, recurrent tonsillitis or score equal to or higher than 5 on the OSA questionnaire.
