10-80 mg/kg, i.p What does this mean?

More specifically for a 165 pound man.


Its an herb. I think they were talking about rats? I wondered if i.p. meant twice a day or something? I have been taking 500mg Turmeric but today increased it to 1000. Fatigue is my issue. Doubling today may have helped just a little but I am unsure.  

Hard to find accurate dosing information. The bottle says 1 pill, 500mg 3 times a day. I have been taking it only in the morning.

    It means one, whose weight is 165 lbs (74.8 kg), is going to take from 748 mg to 5984 mg of some medicine. I.P. means intraperitoneal, that is, the medicine is going to be applied inside your abdomen through an injection or cannula.
