Oh i just checked, If you look on page 17, the paragraph under the blue box, and the last few lines kinda explain it. I guess you dont really need to mention it as its not in the glossary definition, but just be sure that waves occur in non-mylenated neurones, and jumps occur in myelinated neurones (saltatory conduction). But otherwise you got the answer correct
Type 1 diabetes occurs in younger people due to their pancreas not producing insulin. A condition called hyperglycaemia occurs, when blood glucose levels remain high.
Type 2 diabetes occurs in older people due to not being able to produce enough insulin or does not respond well to insulin. It can also be linked to obesity.
