Introduction: Anemia is an important indicator of malnutrition and inadequate food intake can affect people of all age groups

Objective: Analyze food consumption through the iron intake (Fe), folate (B9 or folic acid) and / or cyanocobalamin (B12), and the association between nutritional status and anemia in hospitalized patients.

Methods: Data collection was conducted with institutionalized adults and elderly patients of both sexes, aiming to investigate determinants of anemia on them, consisting of clinical, anthropometric and biochemical data.

Results: The sample comprised 123 patients and found that more than 80% of the examined are anemic. No relationship was found between anemia and nutritional status of patients. There was a correlation between the studied vitamins and anemia. The inadequacy index was accentued in all nutrients mentioned, highlighting folate (B9) with 93.19%.

Conclusion: The result depicts that there was no relationship between nutritional status and anemia, despite the highrates, but war correlated the inadequate food intake with anemia.
