Overweight 12 year old son

My son was once an out going lovable little boy with lots of friends. However when he turned 10 he began gaining weight rapidly and now he refuses to go out in public unless he has to. He's very insecure and not a happy child anymore. He has become very sensitive to any mention of weight or food choices and I am afraid for him. At 10 he was diagnosed w/severe acid reflux. If he misses a dose of Omeprazole he throws up violently which is another reason he has reverted. I don't know how to help him. We have changed his diet to more fruits & vegetables w/smaller portions of meat. And nearly cut snacks altogether but I believe he gets up at night and eat while we are sleeping. I am tears because I don't know how to help him. I love him so much and because he is hurting inside so am I. Advice anybody please. Sincerely, Michelle
